Until last year the only cranberry sauce I knew came out of a can. Turns out, homemade cranberry sauce is a snap to make.
12 ounces cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
First rinse the cranberries and sort out any bad ones.
Next combine orange juice and sugar in a medium saucepan. Over medium heat, dissolve the sugar into the orange juice. You can tell the sugar is dissolved when you can’t hear the sugar granules scraping on the pan when you stir. Once sugar is dissolved, dump in the cranberries.
As it cranberries break open and cook, the mixture will foam a little bit.
Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
Presto! Super simple and fast. I love my homemade cranberry sauce on rolls. If you have an extra fifteen minutes I think it’s definitely worth it to make cranberry sauce yourself rather than opening a can.
