Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Homemade cranberry sauce is probably the easiest recipe to make on your Thanksgiving menu, so don’t be tempted to purchase the canned version! It’s Day 6 of Toni’s 12 Days of Thanksgiving and the perfect time to make Toni’s Perfect Cranberry Sauce- watch the video below for a cooking demonstration of this simple recipe.
Homemade cranberry sauce can be made and stored well in advance without having to freeze because you’re essentially making a sugared jelly out of the fresh cranberries. This recipe for cranberry sauce has never let me down which is why I call it “perfect”.
Toni’s Perfect Cranberry Sauce
This sauce recipe will serve between 6-8 people, so double or triple the recipe if you’re cooking for more people.
- 3 cups cranberries (1 12oz. bag)
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup agave nectar or 1 cup sugar
- Cinnamon sticks- 2
- Combine all ingredients in saucepan; cook over medium heat stirring constantly
- Be amazed at how beautiful the cranberries look when they soften and begin to pop
- Once cranberries are completely softened and have popped (about 10-12 minutes), remove from heat, cool
- Remove cinnamon sticks before serving or stick them up in the sauce for decoration
