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

Classic and fresh cranberry sauce.  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.
