Description

Absolutely quick and easy to make, I go back to this homemade cranberry sauce year after year after year. The juice is nice and thick, and the flavor is all-cranberry, all the time … but with a hint of sweetness. It’s what cranberry sauce was meant to be.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (12 Oz. Bag) Cranberries
  • 1 cup Cranberry Juice (or Orange, Apple Or Any Ot¬her Juice Combination)
  • 1 cup Pure Maple Syrup (not Pancake Syrup!)
  • 3 Tablespoons Juice (you Could Also Do Orange Zest, Lemon Zest, Lemon Juice – Anything Citrusy)

Preparation

Wash bag of cranberries under cool water, then dump into a medium saucepan.

Pour in 1 cup of cranberry juice (or whatever juice you choose).

Pour in 1 cup maple syrup.

Add orange juice (you could also do orange zest, lemon zest, lemon juice – anything citrusy).

Stir together and turn heat on high until it reaches a boil.

Once it comes to a rolling boil, turn the heat down to medium low and continue cooking over lower heat for about 10 minutes, or until the juice is thick. Turn off the heat.

I made this but had to use 1/2 C. corn syrup since I only had 1/2 C left of the pure maple syrup after the other “Ree” recipes I’ve made today for tomorrow. I also simmered it for about an hour, to thicken it up. Really tasty!

I made this last year and plan on making it again because it was super easy and turned out great.

This was ok, but nothing terribly special. And it uses a lot of (expensive) maple syrup. So I won’t be making it again.
