Prep Time: 3 min
Cook Time: 12 min
Yield: 2 1/2 cups sauce


  • ~ 3 cups cranberries – fresh or frozen

  1. Wash and pick through cranberries to make sure they are all good ones.

  1. This year – I added 1/4 cup of Port wine, 1/4 cup sour orange juice and 1/2 cup Simply Orange with pulp to this recipe for the liquids…

    Oh yeah – soooo good!
