Thanksgiving is less than 24 hours away and I have much to do before my family arrives. That means I’ll be spending the majority of my time in the kitchen today finishing all my prep work, for tomorrow’s festivities.
Luckily I have many recipes that I’ve known for years, some dating back to when I was growing up to rely on. One of my favorites is a 5 ingredient Cranberry sauce that’s fresh, simple, tangy and delicious, making it a must add to your holiday menus.
Because today’s such a busy day, I snapped and edited a few photos of the Cranberry sauce via VSCO Cam and Instagram to share with you today. As you can see I had a little helper, who’s also a big fan of this recipe. If she loved it, I’m certain you will too!
Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Cinnamon sticks, raw turbinado sugar, fresh squeezed orange juice and orange zest blended together with the cranberries for a tart and delicious holiday topping.
- 4 cups of fresh cranberries (rinsed)
- 1 cup water
