Homemade Cranberry Sauce

If you think you don't like cranberry sauce, you probably have only had the nasty canned variety. I was one of those people. I hated cranberry sauce until I tried the homemade variety.


Take a trip to the store for the following:

  • 1 lb. cranberries (1 bag)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

Put cranberries, honey, and juice in a sauce pot. (Make sure it's plenty big enough. Sauce will rise) Heat to a boil. Let boil until berries are popping. This will sound like popcorn. When the popping slows down, turn off heat. If you like it chunky, you're done. I like mine smooth, so I scoop out the berries, pulse a couple times in the blender, and then pour back into the saucepot. Give it a stir, and you're done.

I highly suggest making extra to freeze or can. The last two years I haven't had ANY left over to enjoy the next day.
