Snack Like a Southerner: Cranberry Sauce

Homemade Cranberry Sauce Recipe
(simplyrecipes)

Ingredients:
1cup sugar
1cup water
4cups frozen or fresh cranberries

Step One:
"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."

Step Two:
"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."

Step Three:
"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."

Step Four:
"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."
