Ah, tomorrow is my absolute favorite holiday of the year. That means tonight is the night to make my homemade cranberry sauce! I used to hate cranberry sauce because I only ever tried the kind that came out of a can. You know, the kind that’s shaped like a cylinder and you cut it into circles…ugh.
Thankfully (pun intended), my friend has a dad that’s a chef and that gave me this recipe 12 years ago. I’ve made it every year for the last 12 years. Yup, it’s that good. Here it is:
- 4 cups cranberries
- 1.5 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 whole orange, unpeeled, chopped fine
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained
Wash cranberries and set aside. Bring sugar and water to a boil. Add cranberries, orange, and cloves. Simmer over high heat, stirring frequently until berries pop open. Add crushed pineapples, stir to blend.
That’s all there is to it. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
