Forget the canned stuff this holiday season!

You just can’t do Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce. At least that is how I see it. I love me a piece of turkey with some cranberry sauce on it. However, I am not a fan of the classic canned log of cranberry sauce that just flops around on a plate. If you have wondered how to make your own homemade cranberry sauce this holiday season, check out below just how easy it is to whip up the good stuff…

The main ingredient is a 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries. You can find these in the produce section of your local grocery store. Make sure to take them out of the bag and give them a quick rinse.

Next add your ½ cup of orange juice, 2/3 cup of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon into a medium sauce pan. Put them on the burner on medium heat and listen to the music of cooking cranberries. You will start to hear them whistle and pop and nothing says the holidays have arrived like the smell and sound of cooking cranberries. You will let them cook for 10-15 minutes. You will want to cook them until the sugar has dissolved and the cranberries have burst open. This will create that classic jellied and thick cranberry sauce that you want. Let it cool just a bit and it will thicken more. That’s it! So easy and worth the ten minutes to make versus buying the canned log this holiday season. You will be so happy to have done so, I promise! I love to take some of this cranberry sauce and spread it on my turkey for a nice sweet and savory bite or as a topping on a turkey sandwich to give it that festive feel!
