Turkey just isn’t the same without a bit of cranberry sauce on the side. But seriously, skip the canned cranberry sauce. This recipe is so easy, you will think why it took you so long to make your own. Don’t worry, you will have another chance to make this sauce, Canadian Thanksgiving has passed, American Thanksgiving is coming up, and there’s still Christmas.
Basic cranberry sauce consists of cranberries boiled in a sugary liquid until the berries pop and the mixture thickens. The recipe is as simple as emptying the bag of cranberries into a saucepan, add sugar, and a liquid, then cook over low heat for about 10 minutes. The cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
You can play with the recipe to how you like it. You can make the cranberry sauce with water, orange juice, apple juice, berry juice, pomegranate juice, pear juice etc. Add any of the following to spice up the flavour: lemon zest, orange zest, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, crystallized ginger.
So what you will need is:
340 Grams Cranberries, rinsed under cold water
1 cup White Sugar
1 Cup Water (I used Berry Pomegranate juice)
1 Cinnamon Bark (optional)
1. Add all the ingredients to a medium sized saucepan.
2. Turn the stove on to a medium-heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until the cranberries begin to pop. This will take roughly 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and place the sauce into the serving bowl.
