Mama's Holiday Cranberry Sauce

For our family Thanksgivings we switch it up every year and never serve the same thing. 
Except one special dish: Mama's Holiday Cranberry Sauce. We all love to cook and every year we want to try and share new recipes but this cranberry sauce is always the same and always a hit. 
Sometimes she changes it up slightly by adding orange slices or orange zest or substituting brown sugar for white sugar but seriously y'all- you just can't go wrong with a classic! 

 Ingredients: 

  • 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries 
  •  1 cup sugar {can substitute brown sugar}
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  •  1/2 cup water 
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon  

Directions:

  • In a small saucepan over medium high heat add orange juice, water, and sugar.
  • Stir and bring to a boil
  • Add cranberries & cinnamon.  
  • Reduce heat to medium low and simmer.
  •  Stir occasionally, until the cranberries break down and the sauce thickens. This takes about 30-45 minutes. 
  • Serve warm or room temp with Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers like my Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza
*My Mama likes to garnish with orange peel or zest. 
Five basic ingredients are all you need for this delicious traditional side dish. 
Heat a large saucepan over medium heat and add oj and water. 
Pour in sugar and stir to combine. Bring to a boil.
How gorgeous are these cranberries?! I can never go back to the canned 
stuff after trying this fresh cranberry sauce!
Toss the cranberries with the cinnamon.
