Kids love fresh cranberry sauce!

As a child, I did not like cranberry sauce. It looked weird in its jellied can shape, and I just didn’t like the flavor. In contrast, my children love cranberry sauce! Freshly made is much preferred to organic canned , especially considering the BPA risk in tin cans . Here is a basic, simple recipe for cranberry sauce.  Remember to make this ahead of time, as it needs to chill for a few hours to thicken.

Over medium heat in a saucepan heat:

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups organic sugar

Stir occasionally and boil for five minutes.  Add:

  • 4 cups fresh, organic cranberries
  • 1 Tablespoon grated orange peel

Return to boil until cranberries pop (about five minutes).  Cool and refrigerate for at least three hours.

I just spent a small fortune on organic cranberries, but it is worth it to serve this delicious fresh cranberry sauce at our holiday meals.
