Cranberry Sauce Recipe

It’s so easy to make your own delicious cranberry sauce! No preservatives like the store-bought kind, and it doesn’t plop out of the can…still in the shape of a can.

I made mine to go along with a roasted turkey. It turned out to be wonderful! You could even use it as a jam or jelly.

Cranberry Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (unsweetened)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

Bring all the ingredients together in a small saucepan. Bring it to a simmer. Most recipes I’ve looked at say to simmer for 20 minutes. I found the cranberries still looked quite solid. I had lots of time while my turkey was cooking, so I left the cranberries lightly simmering on low for about an hour, and sort of smashed the berries up with a wooden spoon.

It was exactly the texture I wanted. A perfect jelly. Totally worth whipping this up quickly, and the cinnamon adds a lovely touch of spice.

  1. Looks good. Another way of doing is instead of orange juice I remember my parents always put in like small pieces of mandarin oranges or something similar. Another good add in is small pieces of chopped walnuts.
