Best Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Do you make your own cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving?  For years, I didn’t.  I did have a secret trick though.  I mixed a jar of whole cranberry sauce with a jar of jellied cranberries and considered it almost homemade and extremely original.  LOL!!!

The main reason I didn’t bother with making my own was because when I tasted the homemade versions I frankly didn’t think they tasted all that much better.  I didn’t think it was worth the trouble of dirtying another pan at a time when I seemed to be washing a million and one pans and dishes.

Then I tried this cranberry sauce.  I loved it.  It’s nicely spiced but not aggressively so. It’s not too sweet and it’s good and thick.  All these years of cheating!  Who knew it could be this good and this easy!
