Cranberry Sauce With A Twist
I love HOMEMADE cranberry sauce. It is one of the easiest things to make; so I'm baffled as to why anyone would eat cranberry sauce out of a can!! Besides, have you ever looked at the ingredients of canned cranberry sauce? YUCK! Here's a little twist on cranberry sauce that I came up with. It's sweet and tart, but not too much of either.
In a saucepan add the following ingredients:
1 bag of whole cranberries
1 apple, cut into small pieces (depending on how chunky you want it - you can have tiny to bit size pieces)
1 orange: squeeze all the juice over the cranberries
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
Cook for about 12 minutes starting from high to medium heat as the mixture starts to boil. Keep an eye on it, you don't want it to boil over. You'll hear the cranberries popping as it cooks. Stir it occasionally. Cook for about 12 minutes. Remove pan from heat to cool. Within an hour to an hour 1/2 the sauce should no longer be runny and is ready to be served.
