Did you know how easy it was to make cranberry sauce at home? Take my word for it. It’s so easy.
Okay, so maybe it’s not as easy as just opening a couple of tin cans and letting it shlop out in a can-shaped blob of goo into a bowl, but I promise you it’s nearly that easy and the flavor is just worlds better.
- 1 (12 oz.) package fresh cranberries
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1" piece of ginger, peeled
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to minimum and let cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and let cool.
- Remove ginger piece.
- Transfer to a jar and refrigerate until ready for use.
Yeah, seriously that’s it. Most packages of fresh cranberries will have a homemade cranberry sauce recipe on the back. This is basically the same thing, except I can’t seem to stop adding ginger to stuff, so I did that differently.
I know that cranberry sauce is a typical condiment/accompaniment for meaty stuff like turkey and gravy. I have bigger (and much better) plans for my own homemade cranberry sauce.
