Super Simple Craberry Sauce

I would imagine most people crack open a can of cranberry sauce every Thanksgiving simply because they do not know how simple & delicious it is to make fresh & homemade. The recipe we use is so easy our first-grader can make it. (With supervision!)

You will need:
  • 1 bag of cranberries from your produce section, rinsed & any broken fruit removed
  • 1 Cup of plain white sugar
  • 1 Cup of water
  • A splash of lemon or orange juice
Bring just to a boil the water, sugar & lemon juice. Add the cranberries & bring back to a boil.
Reduce heat & simmer until cranberries burst. Remove from heat & let sit until room temperature. It can then be used, or refrigerated. We like to make it the day before then chill it. It thickens as it cools.
