Cranberry Sauce

One of my favorite dishes at Thanksgiving is the cranberry sauce! I always loved the canned version but one year I decided to try making it myself and I’ve used this recipe every year since then.

Here is the recipe:

Cranberry Sauce


  • 24 oz. cranberries, rinsed
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1.5-2 cups sugar


  1. In medium saucepan, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice on medium heat.
  2. Add the cranberries and cook on medium heat, until cranberries begin to pop.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Refrigerate. It will thicken as it cools.

Note: If you are cooking for a smaller group, 12 ounces of cranberries and 1 cup each of sugar and orange juice should make the perfect amount.
