Kick The Can-Try Real Cranberry Sauce

Don't get me wrong, I have no qualms about canned cranberry sauce. It is tart, tangy, sweet, has a cool canned shaped appearance and such a wonderful squishy texture in your mouth. Don't get me wrong its pretty good but I love the real deal so much better.

So for those of you who are part of the canned coalition, I urge you to take 15 minutes out of your busy holiday schedule and make real cranberry sauce. It may become a holiday staple once you find out how simple it is.

  • 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen cranberries, thawed
  • 2 oranges, juiced (enough for 1 cup of liquid) and 1 orange zested
  • 1/2 c.-1 c. light brown sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
  • dash of salt
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until the cranberries just begin to burst, about 15 minutes. Transfer to serving dish and chill.
