Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce

One of the easiest things to make for Thanksgiving or other holiday turkey dinner is homemade cranberry sauce. I have it down to a few simple steps: empty a bag of cranberries into a medium sized pot (I am fortunate to have access to local cranberries), add one frozen can of apple juice (yes, you read that correctly), add sugar and spices, then cook until it reduces and gets thick. The results are perfect every time.

One bag of cranberries (about 4 cups)
One can frozen apple juice (pure apple juice, not a juice like drink)
1/2 cup sugar (add more after you have tasted mixture while it cooks if you like it sweeter)
1/4 tsp each of nutmeg and all spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Bring to a boil, skim off foam.  Reduce heat to medium-low, and reduce until mixture gets thick and cranberries break down.

That's all there is to it! Super easy.  In total, it takes about 20 minutes and can be made well ahead of time.  It will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!
