Cranberry Sauce

This recipe is super quick and easy! It was adapted from a recipe I found online at the Cook’s Country website. It calls for slightly less water than most recipes, so it makes for an amazing consistency in the end.


  • 1 bag cranberries (12 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Combine water, apple cider, sugar, and salt in a medium sauce pan
  • Bring to boil


  • Add cranberries and reduce heat
  • Allow to simmer for 5 minutes
  • 2/3 of berries should burst and sauce should thicken

Chill & Serve

  • Remove from heat
  • Allow to chill for at least 1 hour in refrigerator before serving
