I don’t like cranberry sauce. I’ve been pretty happy without cranberry sauce. But tonight, my mom made her cranberry sauce and something came over me, so I decided to add one more crazy thing to the to -do list. This is more or less what she told me to do… minus the canned pineapple and mandarin oranges… but if pineapple and mandarin oranges are your thing, then totally go for it! 🙂
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- pinch salt
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- Juice of 1/2 of a lime
- Bring water, sugar and salt to a boil. Add the cranberries and cook until they begin to come apart. Mix well and add a squeeze of lime juice. Let cool and store in a tupperware or jar.
Interestingly, the sauce actually congealed a bit as it cooled… kind of reminded me of the canned stuff… so maybe it will be good? I’ll keep you posted. It tasted good when I tried a tiny bit tonight!
