This cranberry sauce recipe has become our household favorite that begins at Thanksgiving time, and is continually remade through Christmas. No store-bought sauce for this family! I am not sure I would know what to do with canned cranberry sauce anymore.
You will like the natural sweet and tart taste of this sauce which is packed full of other ingredients, such as apples, raisins and nuts, along with cranberries.
Homemade cranberry sauce lasts less than 24 hours around here.
The aroma of this sauce fills the air when I make it: cranberries, cinnamon, orange, and cloves…I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
