Homemade Cranberry Sauce

With Thanksgiving coming up I thought I would share my recipe for homemade cranberry sauce. If you have never made cranberry sauce don't worry, it's easy. This cranberry sauce is not only much better than store bought, it's also free of HFCS and BPA which store bought can contain. You can also change this recipe up for your families tastes, if you like it a bit more tart just use less sugar or a bit more orange juice. Some people like to add other fruit to their cranberry sauce as well so play around with it.

Ingredients
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice



Directions
  1. Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan.
  2. Bring to boil
  3. Simmer until berries pop and if like me you like your cranberry sauce less lumpy just cook until it’s the texture you like. (be sure to stir every once an awhile)
  4. Chill until ready to serve. (thought I end up eating a few spoonfuls while still warm) 
  5. Optional: If you aren't a fan of whole cranberry sauce just run it through the blender after it cools.
