It is not a Thanksgiving meal without the cranberry sauce! Ours is super simple and is more on the tangy than the sweet side to pair it with all the fruity, citrus and slightly sweet side dishes.
Just add one 16 oz bag of cranberries, 1.5 cups of water and 1 cup of raw organic sugar to a pan on the stove and let it simmer until the berries cook into a sauce. If it’s too tangy, you can add more sugar for your taste. We like ours on the tangy slightly sweet side.
