Homemade Cranberry sauce is really easy to make and tastes so much better than the canned stuff. It doesn’t take much effort or time to make, and by making it yourself you can also control the amount of sugar and leave out all the other additives. Cranberries are very tart so even a cup of sugar in this recipe lets that tartness shine through. You can use more or less depending on what you prefer for sweetness verses tartness.It’s so easy and simple to add homemade cranberry sauce to your Thanksgiving dinner, so why not?
12 ounces cranberries
1 cup white sugar
1cup orange juice
In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
