Homemade Cranberry Sauce Recipe

Homemade Cranberry Sauce Recipe

You can’t have Thanksgiving dinner without cranberry sauce. It is the perfect sweet and sour foil to savoury Thanksgiving dinner. I have always been a fan of canned cranberry sauce because, honestly, it tasted pretty good.  Canned cranberry sauce is now filed under things that I didn’t know that I didn’t know. I still think it tastes pretty good but whenever I can, I will make homemade cranberry sauce. It is easy peasy and tastes amazing. This homemade cranberry sauce recipe is super easy but I warn you, you may never buy canned sauce again.
