Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Boiling the cranberries
Because I took ideas from more than one recipe, I need to write it down here.  Thanksgiving Day 2016 was spent in Florida, in my new home, with my two sons.

Because I didn’t have any cranberry sauce, but I had a bag of fresh cranberries, I made my own sauce.  Here’s how I did it.

Rinse cranberries and pick out defective ones.

Dump them into a pan.  Add 1/3 cup of water or cranberry juice (I used juice – real, not sweetened).  Add 1 cup of sugar.  I would cut down on the sugar, or use real Maple Syrup in it’s place.  One recipe called for syrup.  How I wish I was in NH where the syrup is plentiful.

Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil.  Cook until it looks mushy.  Add orange juice.  (I had an orange so I squeezed the juice and added that.)

I also added cinnamon.  It’s good for you, and I love to add it to everything I can.

The sauce came out very tasty, if chunky.  I could strain the chunks out, but don’t have to.
