Cranberry sauce

Thomas' Cranberry Sauce

Christmas was wonderful and I made many of my own recipes. This year was my first time making homemade cranberry sauce. I wanted my first batch to be my own recipe. Aubrey loves cranberry sauce, any time of the year, canned or fresh. This one is more than good, it is wonderful. The spices and honey work great together and the apple juice gives a nice light flavor that really adds to the dish. This is a gluten free dish.


 24oz. Fresh cranberries

1 ½ cups white sugar

½ cup honey

½ tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

2 cups unfiltered, not from concentrate, no sugar added Apple juice + ¼ more


1. Dump everything into a pot and let simmer for 20 min  stirring occasionally uncovered.

2. When it begins to thicken and cranberries start falling apart turn down to low and cook for another 20 min stirring occasionally uncovered.

3. Take off stove and let stand 15 min before serving. Serve warm, it tastes the best right after making it

Note: If you are making it at the same time as dinner do not worry about the extra ¼ cup apple juice. If you are making it the day before add the extra ¼ cup apple juice when heating up the cranberry sauce.
