This super easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce is amazing and so easy to prepare. We think you’ll love it!


– 1/2 cup water – 1/2 cup orange juice – 3/4-1 cup sugar – 12 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries – 1/2 tsp orange zest

In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring the water and orange juice to a boil. Add in the sugar and stir until it is dissolved.

Pour in the cranberries and stir until they begin to burst, then lower heat to a simmer, add in the orange zest (if using), and allow to cook for 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Place it in the refrigerator for an hour to chill and continue thickening.
