Happy Thanksgiving! [Recipe] Cranberry Sauce

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend, enjoying some time with the people you love most.

This quick post is brought to you by my fantastic husband, as he makes one of his kitchen specialties this weekend – cranberry sauce. My husband makes delicious homemade cranberry sauce, and we look forward to eating it every year with our turkey dinner. I hope you try to make your own too – it’s easier than you think, and so much better than that jelly stuff you get in a can.

The added bonus here is that Husband makes it at Thanksgiving, and we have enough for this turkey dinner, as well as the one we usually enjoy at Christmas, as long as we seal it hot in mason jars.


[Recipe] Husband’s Homemade Cranberry Sauce

1 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
12 oz fresh cranberries

Measure sugar, orange juice, and spices into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Add washed and rinsed cranberries.

Simmer until most of the cranberries pop, about 10 minutes. Mash some of the cranberries with the back of a wooden spoon if you’d like a less chunky sauce.

Ladle into jars. Process as desired for sterilization and storage.
