Homemade Cranberry Sauce?

A co-worker asked if I had a good recipe for cranberry salad, so I gave her mine. I found out today, she cooked it down, then proceeded to take off all the skins, strained it, added some gelatin, and made a jellied one!! I howled when I heard that!!!!

When I was a child both versions were on our Thanksgiving table. Homemade whole-berry sauce and the can-shaped.

Later, when I had my own family, I served the same. One year I failed to buy the canned jelly and I thought our youngest son was going to cry. I never did that again. It was even served in its very own special silver bowl.

Already told you at what temp it's served.

Katie - (off topic) but I made sherry gravy one year (threw about a cup of sherry into the turkey while cooking) and my son DID cry!!!!!!! He was about 9 and sherry wasn't really something his taste buds approved of YET! I felt like such a bad mother!!!!

We never had this when I was growing up. My Mom always got whole berry cranberry sauce. Most of the time I make my own, but buy the canned whole berry type in the off season. For the holidays with dressing it is served cold. But sometimes I serve cranberry sauce heated to spoon over chicken or such.

I am skipping directly to the end of this post so if some covered this I apologize.

You should try making your own. It is the most simple of Thanksgiving foods.

1 bag cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water

Place in a pan and boil until the berries burst. stir and cook until thick and wonderful. Orange or lemon zest in it is really good as well.

Enjoy,
Bryan

Bryan, consider replacing the water with OJ and cutting the sugar in half.

Cold or room temp for my gang..I have several bags of frozen cranberries, has anyone made cranberry sauce using the frozen berries? Plan to give it a try and see what I get..I've used the zest of an orange in mine but think I'll try using the juice as well...

If they are like the fresh bagged but just frozen you certainly can make the sauce.No difference.

Yes they are still in the bag. I pitched 3 bags of them in there in January or February, so I'll dig 2 of them out and have a try at it... Thanks
