How To: Make Cranberry Sauce

This photo is from here.
So Christmas, and Thanksgiving for all my American readers, is fast approaching! What does that mean? It means that you will be stuffing yourself with so much food that you'll probably be suffering more than enjoying, haha.

But with Christmas and Thanksgiving, there's pretty much always a turkey. And what's a turkey without gravy and cranberry sauce? Though my family and I do not make our gravy from scratch, I am in charge of making the cranberry sauce from scratch, so this year I decided to share the method with all of you. It's seriously the simplest recipe ever, seriously, my family entrusted the task to a 15-year-old.

So let's get started!


4 cups of cranberries
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar


Step 1
Pour about 4 cups of cranberries into a colander and wash them briefly with cold water.

Step 2
Add the water and sugar into a pot and bring it to a boil and make sure your sugar is dissolved.

Step 3
Pour all of the cranberries into the pot and bring it to a boil again while stirring constantly.

Step 4
Turn the heat down and let it simmer, stirring occasionally until all the cranberries have split.
(Be careful as the cranberries do burst and you definitely do not want a stain.)

Step 5
Keep stirring until achieving something that looks like the picture above. Then remove from heat and allow it to cool at room temperature.

There you have it! Homemade cranberry sauce. It's super easy and probably only take 15-20 minutes!

I hope all my American readers have a happy Thanksgiving!

And to everyone else, the countdown to Christmas starts now!
