Recipe: Cranberry Sauce

This is my little holiday favorite! I take one week off and dive back into cooking!

This is my homemade Cranberry sauce. I discovered this recipe and haven’t eaten cranberry sauce from a can since.

Cranberry Sauce

In a saucepan, boil down:

  • 1 pound whole cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp “spiced” mixture (see below)

Boil down until “jelly” consistence appears on spoon then low simmer for ten minutes. Serves 20


Spice Mixture:

Combine in a separate bowl:

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Add 1 tsp of spice mixture to the cranberry sauce.

I use this ratio for sugar cookies, raisin cookies, pies, breads… I throw it into almost everything this time of the year.


And now! My eggnog! I’ll have to add that one later. 🙂 The recipe is down stairs.
