Homemade Cranberry Sauce

b04 Homemade Cranberry Sauce

This is the first post in our American Thanksgiving series, and we are starting off with our homemade cranberry sauce.  Do me a favor and close your eyes for a second and think of a beautiful Thanksgiving table.  The wonderful foods start to make their way around the table.  You look down as someone hands you a white dish with a purple-ish maroon circular lump that’s in the shape of a can.  It still has the indent lines.  This is your traditional cranberry sauce.  You take your butter knife and cut yourself a nice congealed slice.  That sounds appealing for sure.  Well, this is not that kind of cranberry sauce.  This is an actual sauce and you’ll need a spoon to serve it.  This is tangy and fruity and cranberry-y.  It can turn even the most turkey purists into cranberry sauce lovers.  The cost to make this is under $5.00 and total time to make it is 15-20 minutes.  So why not give this a try this year instead of getting the can!
