Classic and fresh cranberry sauce made with real cranberries. This will pair perfectly with your savory holiday meals!
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.

It’s the best! This year I made it in the crock pot and added my usual part OJ and grated orange peel. I wish you could bottle that scent all season long…(:
Hi, how much orange juice and orange peel do you add and did you cook in on low all day (how many hours)?
This is gorgeous! I’ve never made homemade cranberry sauce, can you believe it?
