Recipe: Easy Peasy Homemade Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce

Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone!
Or Happy ThankYouGivings Day as we say in my family :)
I'm sharing one of my favorite (and easy) recipes to make for the special day.
Hope your day is awesome and family drama is minimal!

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Cranberry Sauce

1 lb. fresh cranberries
1 c. water
1 1/2 c. sugar

Rinse the berries in a colander and remove stems and bad berries.

In a medium saucepan, heat the water and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Then bring the syrup up to a boil and pour in the cleaned berries. Adjust the heat so the mixture maintains a simmer and cook until all the berries pop or crack open, about five to seven minutes.

Take the sauce off the heat at this point, or simmer it down to the desired thickness. Remember the sauce will thicken a little while cooling. Chill overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

While simmering the berries, additional ingredients can be added for more flavoring such as orange zest or spices like cinnamon. (I don't. I'm a purist)
