Cranberry Sauce


  • 12 ounces cranberries
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice


In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools. Serves between 8 – 12.

Sugared Cranberries


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar


  1. Combine granulated sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring mixture until sugar dissolves. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat. (Do not boil or the cranberries may pop when added.) Stir in cranberries; pour mixture into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain cranberries in a colander over a bowl, reserving steeping liquid, if desired. Place superfine sugar in a shallow dish. Add the cranberries, rolling to coat with sugar. Spread sugared cranberries in a single layer on a baking sheet; let stand at room temperature 1 hour or until dry.
  3. Note: The steeping liquid clings to the berries and helps the sugar adhere. Store in an airtight container in a cool place for up to a week.

  1. We’re getting TTV/doublers again?!

  2. Christna w says:

    am I seeing that there is going to be another weekend of doublers for the third week in a row!

  3. So sad :( no twice the value coupon here in missoula.

  4. The paper ad I have has the cranberry’s in the three-day, sale flyer that ends on Saturday, so we couldn’t use the TTV’s…am looking at this wrong? Thanks!

    • The inside of the flyer isn’t part of the 3 day sale just the one side that goes from the bacon to the Red Baron Pizza’s are the 3 day sale. It seems a little miss leading but the 3 day ones are labeled next to each item the dates. Great question thanks!

  5. It’s hard to find experienced people on this topic, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!

    • Thanks!I try really hard to know about the stores I shop at the most & all their policies. I have great relationships with the Albertsons staff. They are very personable with all their customers at the one I shop at.Thanks again for the sweet comment!

  6. I’ve been trying to find a place to ask this. (Keep getting there late.) I’m trying to figure out HOW to use the store coupons that were given to me after buying certain things. They might be Catalinas, but the only ones I’ve had from other stores were literally just, say, $1 off next purchase. These say things like, $1 off $3 in produce.” How do I use these? Like, if I buy 2 Cranberries, using only one $1/1 coupon, can I use the “catalina” and 2 ttv’s to get both bags free?

    • Let me see if I understand enough to answer, if not just give me a few more details. If the $1/$3 in produce says “store coupon” on the top you can not use a ttv with it. {that’s like 2 store coupons} Albertsons has been giving a lot of those “bonus” catalinas out lately [yaya!] So in the case I think you are saying the answer would be no you can’t double it if it says ‘store coupon’ on the top by the date. If the catalina prints out & says ‘manufacture coupon’ you can double it. Does that help?
