Homemade Cranberry Sauce

contest winner icon

This is about as easy as it gets and only takes ten minutes. ;-)


  • 4 cups cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar


Mix all ingredients in a saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Cook about 10 minutes (when the berries have all burst and the liquid has reduced a little bit). The sauce will thicken as it cools.

Works well if you add some fresh orange juice (and zest) in lieu of some of the sugar, yummy!
