Here is the most basic recipe for cranberry sauce, which is a classic companion to roasted turkey on everyone’s Thanksgiving table. This recipe is super easy and fast, and much better-tasting that the canned variety.
2 cups of fresh cranberries
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
Place all the ingredients into a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil on medium heat, stir until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered for about 10 minutes, until berries pop.
Remove sauce from the stove and let it cool to room temperature. Cranberry sauce can be served warm or chilled, and it is a lovely accompaniment to poultry or pork. It will stay fresh under refrigeration for up to 2 weeks.
Prep time 5 minutes
Cook time about 15 minutes
