cooking up a batch of cranberry sauce

Happy Thanksgiving !
 this is  how i make cranberry sauce. it  is good any time of year if you find a bag of frozen berries in your fridge.  and you can change the flavors depending what is on hand.

 water to cover and sugar to taste, or follow the instruction on the back of the bag. i add grated ginger, honey or maple syrup, lemon zest, cinnamon, chopped apple or pear ,chopped up orange  in small chunks that include flesh and skin, halfed grapes, shopped up dried fruit bts, and a splash of Merlot.
 cook until the berries start to pop. cool .add nuts if you like a crunch and texture. this is  an adult sauce and my nieces preferred the canned sauce when they were young.
                                              yummo! i love this color .
Happy Thanksgiving to all !

if you can shop and boil water you can do this. after it cools I drain off extra liquid and have a delicious beverage!
