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.

Tried this for the first time this year after trying other recipes. I should have known Ree would have a good recipe. It has not cooled yet, but so far delicious!

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.
