Quick and Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce
I love cranberries, so I usually stock up when they're available in the fall so I can freeze them to use when they're hard to find. When I found bags for sale in the freezer case the other day -- in spring -- I felt inspired to share this simple cranberry sauce recipe to go along with the Turkey Cranberry Runzas!
- 3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries about 12 ounces
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- juice from half a lemon
Combine all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan and bring to a full boil over medium-high heat. Reduce temperature and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.
Let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until ready to use.
