( — A bright, festive dish of cranberry sauce is the essential holiday feast staple. But why buy the canned variety when it only takes about 20 minutes to make it fresh? Instead of water, this recipe enhances the delicious flavor by simmering the cranberries in apple cider and sugar until the berries burst and the sauce thickens.

Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook time:12-15 minutes

1 pound cranberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup apple cider
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar


1. In a saucepan, combine the cranberries, cider, and sugars.
2. Simmer until the cranberries begin to burst and the sauce thickens, 12 to 15 minutes.
