Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce

I found this recipe in a Thanksgiving issue of Cooking Light many years ago and have been making it every Thanksgiving since! It's simple, easy and delicious, Enjoy!

Ps - if you're feeling ambitious, this recipe can easily be punched up by adding a little cinnamon, splitting the apple juice with a little orange juice and adding a little orange zest to taste!

Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Apple cider stands in for water to add dimension to this cranberry sauce. It's great with pork or turkey. Try some as a relish on a sandwich made with leftovers.

Yield
8 servings (serving size: 1/4 cup)

Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1 (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries

Preparation
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes or until cranberries pop, stirring occasionally. Chill.
