I always have a fresh cranberry sauce on my Thanksgiving table, and I buy extra bags of fresh cranberries and throw them in the freezer so I can make it whenever I want to. It’s tart and sweet at the same time, and why would you buy the canned stuff when you can do this so quickly and easily. It’s delicious with all poultry. Buy a few bags of fresh cranberries, they are all over the place now. If you have the room throw a few bags in the freezer.
12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Bring 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a boil, dump in whole bag of cranberries (12 oz) bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. I let it sit a little off the heat and then refrigerate, this is so easy. Keeps for a pretty long while in fridge, and can def be made way ahead of the big day. For Thanksgiving I use 2 bags because it is my second Cranberry Dish. Since it’s really just a relish 2 bags is enough. Just double . Happy Thanksgiving!
