Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is such a classic Thanksgiving dish. I almost feel silly posting this recipe, since it just came from the Ocean Spray website, but since we love it so much, I decided it was blog-worthy. This is the only recipe I make and it always gets rave reviews. And it’s so easy, there’s no excuse for eating cranberry sauce from a can.

You’ll notice that I took down all the pinkness from my blog today. I’ve also got some fall favorites on my side bar and brought back my header from August, so be sure to stop by if you’re reading through a reader to check it out!

    This has been a great hit this winter in “ski country” –easy to make with (pretty) easy ingredients to have on hand (once you buy the bag of sliced almonds, frozen cranberries, and almond extract!)
    First time I made it as written. Delicious but very strong almond flavor. Second time I reduced the 1/2 c sugar on the cranberries to 1/4 cup, sub’d fine cornmeal for 1/2 the flour and reduced the almond extract by half. Pretty tart but almost all my friends liked it better (and if you want it sweeter you can add the whipped cream or ice cream…) and it is a nice counterpoint on a dessert buffet of sweeter brownies and cookies.

    Thanks for the recipe! Hope you are doing well in Ohio.

      So glad you’ve enjoyed this. I loved how simple it was to make! Almond extract definitely has a strong flavor, so I can see cutting it down for sure! Ohio is treating us well so far.
