Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Okay, I know that you can buy a can of cranberry and plop it on a plate. However, once you see how simple and easy it is to make it yourself you might just give it a try. A bonus is that the house will smell absolutely wonderful as you are cooking it! You can use fresh or frozen cranberries, if using frozen simply thaw before cooking. If you don’t have a cinnamon stick substitute 1 TBSP ground cinnamon. This recipe makes a tart cranberry sauce, if you want it to be sweeter simply adjust the sugar to 1 Cup. 

1 pound cranberries
2 large apples (Granny Smith or other tart apple)
¾ Cup sugar
1 stick cinnamon
¼ cup water

Peel, core and cut the apples into chunks. Add all ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the apples and cranberries cook down and the mixture thickens. Remove the cinnamon stick. Don’t be afraid to taste the cranberry sauce and add more sugar until it suits you! You can make this up to a week in advance and store it in the fridge! One more thing to mark off your list
