Cranberry Sauce

I don't have a picture of this just yet, but I will be sure to download it once I get it. I made this last year before I started food blogging, aka-before I started taking pictures of everything I made, Glenn rolls his eyes every time!

Even if you are a partial fan of cranberry sauce, you should really try making it home made, just once! It's delicious, beautiful, and you'll impress a your family and friends with a very simple recipe. You can make it a few days in advance since it has to chill anyway. This recipe makes enough to feed a large crowd, and it's great for leftovers too. Use it in your turkey sandwiches, or use it as a chutney by spreading it on top of a cracker with cream cheese, delicious!

Happy Holiday baking everyone!!


1 pound (4 cups) fresh cranberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 whole orange, unpeeled, seeds removed, and chopped fine
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Sprinkle ground cinnamon


Wash cranberries and set aside.
Bring sugar and water to a boil. Add cranberries, oranges, and cloves. Simmer over a high flame, stirring frequently, until berries pop open. Add crushed pineapple, walnuts, and cinnamon, and blend. Cool and serve.

(Once cooled, it will have the thickness of jello. And if your frigde is already packed full, cover in plastic wrap and put on your porch. If it's as cold there as it is here in Philly, it will cool just fine!)
