3-Ingredient Whole-Berry Cranberry Sauce
Once you make homemade cranberry sauce, you'll wonder what you were thinking all those years buying the prepackaged stuff. Cook whole cranberries with some sugar, water — and maybe a slice of orange, or sprinkle of cinnamon — if you like. It's almost as easy as opening a can.
- In a heavy saucepan, bring cranberries and water to a boil and summer until the berries pop, about 10-12 minutes.
- Stir in sugar and let cool.
- Store refrigerated.
- Adjust sugar to your taste or try brown sugar or honey.
- Replace some or all of the water with orange juice.
- Add apples when cooking.
- Try adding a pinch of cinnamon or cardamom.
