Fresh Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Up your thanksgiving game this year by choosing fresh!

Cook time: 10 min / Prep time: hardly any!


  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ c water
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • Dash cinnamon, freshly ground black pepper, ground cloves/nutmeg


  1. Wash and pick over cranberries. In a saucepan bring to a boil water and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add cranberries and spices, return to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat, simmer for 10 minutes or until cranberries burst. Remove from heat.
