Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Can I tell you something? In all my years of making thanksgiving dinner I have never bothered to make cranberry sauce. I really have no reason except that I was under the impression that no one liked it. Well, I guess not too many people like the store bought stuff, which in my opinion, leaves something to be desired. But after making it myself, I have a new found love for the REAL THING. You must try it at least once to understand how delicious homemade cranberry sauce can be.
Homemade Cranberry-Orange Sauce
1 12oz. pkg of fresh Cranberries
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
The zest and juice of one orange
put all the ingredients in a heavy bottom saucepan and cook on medium heat until the mixture boils. Boil for about 3 mins and then turn on simmer and cook for roughly 10 mins. During this time you may mash with a potato masher, the berries that have not burst. Transfer to a glass bowl and cool. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Thats it!!! its that easy....
