Homemade Cranberry Sauce Recipe

Homemade Cranberry Sauce 

Every year my family loves when I make my homemade cranberry sauce. I thought it would be fun to share my homemade cranberry sauce with you all, after all it was the inspiration behind our Cranberry Spice Candle. 

Ingredients for Homemade Cranberry Sauce 

1 – 1lb bag of fresh cranberries

2 oranges, you will need the fruit and some zest

½ cup water

¾ cup of sugar

¼ cup of brown sugar

3 whole cloves

1 or 2 cinnamon sticks, you know the brown dried kind 


Take approximately 1 tablespoon of orange zest from the orange then chop up the inside fruit into small bits.

Add the cranberries and all ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Slowly cook for 3 to 4 hours, you will need to stir occasionally. Place in refrigerator and chill before serving. 

Here is a fun idea, if you are a guest and bringing cranberry sauce, why not make a little extra, put it in a cute little jar, tie a string around it and bring it as a hostess gift. Hopefully your hostess will have left overs the next day and who doesn't want a little cranberry sauce with their turkey.
