Making this cranberry sauce really could not be much easier and we love how fresh it tastes as compared to canned cranberry sauce! It has bursts of lemon, cinnamon and orange and just screams Thanksgiving.
You simply place all the ingredients into the pot, bring it to a simmer, reduce the heat, and cook for 15 minutes before cooling. Nothing tricky about that! I feel like a lot of people get intimidated when it comes to cooking sugar but rest assured, this recipe requires no thermometer and you will be left with a minimal mess when completed.
Also definitely worth making year round to have on hand to use as a condiment, a spread, or even as a component for a salad!
Did you know that cranberries are one of the only Native American fruits? Makes sense why would celebrate Thanksgiving with this staple that no matter traditions, is always at our tables!
Cranberry sauce recipes that were originally just made with sugar and water date back to the lated 17th century and actually, the first acknowledgment of a cranberry sauce recipe is in a 1796 cookbook called American Cookery by Amelia Simmons. The cookbook calls for serving roast turkey with you guessed it, cranberry sauce.
Like we said, this recipe is so simple that it's a "why wouldn't I make this?" moment. You only need 8 ingredients which most you might already have on hand. Here is your grocery list:
Happy almost Thanksgiving! We hope this cranberry sauce is part of your holiday this year.
Cheers and eat well!
