Cranberry Sauce is a sauce that is traditionally served with turkey on Thanksgiving in the States. And if I am not mistaken the British serve this sauce with their Christmas Dinner.
Basic Cranberry Sauce is very easy to prepare but there is a lot of room for variation if you want to change things a little. You can add spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon; some water can be substituted with orange juice; orange zest can be added, or raisins, almonds, pecans etc…
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 cups fresh cranberries
Wash the cranberries. In a medium sauce pan, combine the water and sugar and bring to a boil.
Add the cranberries. Bring to a boil again. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until all the berries burst, occasionally stirring.
Let the sauce cool. It will thicken as it cools.
