Hey guys! Today I have a delicious treat for you all, homemade cranberry sauce. While I haven't tried the canned kind, I will say that homemade is better. Based on that one word, homemade. Why would you ever take a gel-like substance over the real deal? Why, I ask?! Why?! Being sugar-free (I use honey instead of sugar), homemade cranberry sauce overall is a much healthier option. It's very easy to make and goes great on turkey sandwiches the next day. It's almost better on a sandwich, in my opinion. Just add a little brie and you've got yourself a gourmet leftover lunch. But I digress, this year, please try this homemade option instead of going out and buying a can of goop. Thank you and goodnight! Recipe below:
-1/2 Cup of water
- 4 Cups of fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1 10oz. Can of Mandarin Oranges (no sugar added)
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1 tsp of nutmeg
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until cranberries start to pop. Then mash the cranberries and oranges together and continue to let thicken (about 15 minutes total). Keep chilled until ready to serve. Enjoy!
