Homemade cranberries are a bazilllion times tastier than the canned version and until I started making this, I didn’t realize how easy it was to make. The best part is, you can make it well in advance and cross one dish off your list.
Ready to make some? Start with a pound of fresh cranberries. Rinse them and make sure there aren’t any stray stems.
Add the washed cranberries, 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water to a large pot. Cover and cook on high until the mixture boils.
Add 1 diced apple and 2 small cans of mandarin oranges and one can of mandarin orange juice. Stir and turn off the stove. The heat from the berries will cook the apples.
If your mixture is too runny, cook on low until the mixture thickens. The sky is the limit with this recipe. Add pears, raisins or even nuts to personalize this dish.
Don’t you just love those fuchsia colored apples?
Thanks so much for stopping by.
