cranberry sauce recipe

  • Question:-Do you know a great cranberry sauce recipe?
    I'm looking to spice up my Thanksgiving dinner with a homemade cranberry sauce, but I haven't a recipe to look to! Does your family have a great recipe?

    Answer:-1 bag (1 pound) fresh cranberries ,rinsed and checked for bad berries
    One cup water
    1 cup granulated sugar ( for a sweeter sauce add 1 1/2 cups sugar)

    In a large saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil and cook about 5 minutes. Add cranberries to the boiling syrup and cook until all the berries have popped, about 8-10 minutes. The sauce may appear thin but will thicken as it cools.

    For Jellied Cranberry sauce: Pour mixture into a cheese cloth lined metal sieve. With the back of a spoon press the mixture to extract as much juice as possible.
    Return the juice to a clean sauce pan and bring to a boil.Boil 10-15 minutes until slightly thickened. Pour into a pretty serving bowl and chill until set.

    Add a cinnamon stick to the berries as they cook.
    Add orange zest or chopped orange or both to the berries as they cook.

  • Question:-Does anyone have a good spicy cranberry sauce recipe made from fresh cranberrys?
    I do not want a recipe off the internet please. I had one but mis placed the recipe over 10 years ago. My recipe was made with fresh cranberrys, jalapeno pepper, cloves, cinnamon, and a few other ingredients if that helps. Thank You in advance!
    This is a sauce recipe that is cooked not a raw relish.

    12 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
    1 cup water
    1 cup white sugar
    2 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
    3 teaspoons lemon juice
    1/2 cup sherry

    Rinse berries in cold water; drain.
    In a saucepan, stir together water and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and come to a boil. Stir in the cranberries, jalapeno peppers and lemon juice; return the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes; stirring occasionally.
    Stir lemon juice and sherry into the mixture until blended. Remove the pan from heat and allow the mixture to cool completely at room temperature. Refrigerate the cooled mixture in a glass container with lid until you are ready to serve.

  • Question:-I just hit level 3!!! Anyways, does anyone have a good cranberry sauce recipe?
    I would prefer one without a bunch of add ins. I tried food network and didn't like what I saw. Aloha :)

    Answer:-One I like and my family as well, is a raw cranberry sauce.
    Now I do this without measuring, so I will try to give you the idea and you can try it... Make a smaller batch to see if you will like it.
    In my blender,
    I add about 2 cups Fresh/frozen (thawed)cranberies
    1 entire cut up orange Navel or Valencia (peel, pith, seeds, all of it.)
    Blend this well so no big chunks.
    Add 1 cup sugar, to the blender mix well, and taste for sweetness, add more a little at a time
    1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
    again I taste see if it is enough.
    This keeps for weeks in the fridge in a jar with a tight fitting lid.
  • Question:-Do you have a delicious cranberry sauce recipe you can share with me?

    Answer:-Cranberry Sauce

    2 (12 ounce) packages fresh cranberries
    1 orange, zested
    3 cinnamon sticks
    2 cups orange juice
    2 cups packed brown sugar

    In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, orange zest, cinnamon, orange juice, and brown sugar. Add enough water to cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Immediately reduce heat, and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the sauce has thickened. Taste for sweetness, and adjust with additional sugar if necessary. You can not overcook, so continue cooking until you have a good thick consistency. Let mixture cool, then refrigerate in a covered container.
