Cranberry Sauce


1 cup water
1 cup white sugar
1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries (such as Ocean Spray®)


Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; add sugar and cook until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Mix cranberries into the sugar water; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until desired consistency is reached, about 10 minutes.

Cook’s Note:

Up to 2 cups sugar may be used in the recipe if you prefer a sweeter sauce. I use 1 cup because I prefer the tart flavor of the cranberry.

The longer you boil it, the less chunky it will be. I prefer mine with chunks of cranberries, almost like cherry pie filling, so I boil for a bit less than 10 minutes.

Enjoy !!!
