Fresh Cranberry Sauce

cranberry-sauce6Almost no one in my family seems to like cranberry sauce. You know the kind you buy in a can from Ocean Spray? Heck I don’t even like it.

Now my husband Joe insisted we have the jellied kind during the holidays. It was always left over even though it is traditional and a must serve with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

Well about 10 years ago that all changed when I started serving my Grandmothers Fresh Cranberry Sauce.

She was an original health food nut before there was such a thing and honestly it was far to tart for me as a kid. But when I grew up and started having the family gatherings at my house that changed.

Now friends and family complain A LOT if this is not served at holiday meals. I am still not able to convince my brother how great this is and he has been unable to convince me her rhubarb pie was great :)

If this is to sweet for you then add less sugar … but we all love this sauce just as it is written here and it is so very simple to make. It lasts quite a while in the refrigerator and since the cranberries and orange is totally fresh … NO COOKING … all of the vitamins and enzymes are still in there.
