This homemade cranberry sauce recipe is as easy as it is delicious with only 3 ingredients and taking as little as 15 minutes to make from start to finish.  You can modify it per the instructions to make it more tart or more of a sweet cranberry sauce. It is the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner and can be made ahead to save time.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Combine cranberries, orange juice and sugar (amount based on your sweetness preference) in a sauce pan over medium-high heat and cook stirring frequently until the mixture begins to boil.
  2. Once the mixture boils, reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for 3-5 additional minutes, or until it is the "chunkiness" you desire.  The longer you cook the more smooth it will be.
  3. Remove from heat and cool in fridge until serving.  Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
  4. Serve chilled and ENJOY!

Notes

You can make this up to 1 week ahead of time and store in an airtight container until you are ready to use.
