Homemade Cranberry Sauce

It only takes 30 minutes and so worth it! Eat it with turkey, roast beef, or ham. Warm it and have it over brie, ice cream, or better yet a brownie sundae. Oh, use it on a sandwich. I am sure there are countless ways to use this sauce that is a little tart, a little sweet, and a lot yummy!

Homemade Cranberry Sauce

1¾ cups water
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup corn starch
zest of 1/2 an orange
1 tsp cinnamon
2 (12 oz) bags fresh cranberries

In large pot, stir together water, orange juice, sugar, corn starch, orange zest, and cinnamon. Stir in cranberries, bring to boil and cook for 5 minutes. Turn down to low and simmer for 20 minutes until cranberries are tender and start to split. Use spoon or rubber spatula to press cranberries against side of pan to smash. Smash them all or leave some whole, it’s up to you and how you like it. Remove from heat, cool, put in airtight container, and refrigerate. Makes 6 cups of cranberry sauce.
