Homemade Cranberry Sauce Recipe
4cups frozen or fresh cranberries
"Place the cranberries in a colander and rinse them. Pick out and discard any damaged or bruised cranberries. Put the water and sugar in a medium saucepan on high heat and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar."
"Add the cranberries to the pot and return to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until most of the cranberries have burst."
"Once the cranberries have burst you can leave the cranberry sauce as is, or dress it up with the other ingredients--pecans, nutmeg, blueberries, orange zest, cinnamon or allspice."
"Remove the pot from the heat. Let cool completely at room temperature, then transfer to a bowl to chill in the refrigerator. Note that the cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools."
