This recipe is so easy and delicious that you’ll never need to open another can of cranberry sauce again!

Ingredients

1
pound fresh or frozen cranberries (4 cups)
2
cups water
2
cups sugar

Directions

  • 1 Rinse cranberries with cool water, and remove any stems or blemished berries.
  • 2 Heat water and sugar to boiling in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Continue boiling 5 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
  • 3 Stir in cranberries. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Continue boiling about 5 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until cranberries begin to pop. Pour sauce into bowl or container. Refrigerate about 3 hours or until chilled.

Expert Tips

Be sure to cook the cranberries until they “pop” in order to release the natural pectin, which thickens the sauce.

Want more flavor? Stir in 1 tablespoon grated orange peel after cooking.
