Cranberry sauce was something I was never really into, until a few years ago. Once I gave it a try I was instantly hooked! It pairs so well with the Thanksgiving turkey and side dishes. It adds a little sweetness with all that savory food.
This recipe for cranberry sauce is classic, simple and delicious. We love this recipe as is, but you could definitely dress it up by adding orange juice or lemon zest.
