I hope that I don't really need to tell anyone that most every time you make something yourself it tastes way better than when you pull it out of a can. There is also the added bonus in the case of cranberry sauce that your creation doesn't have those can lines on it. I bet some people like those attractive lines though. With Christmas coming up I will leave you with one simple recommendation. Make this from scratch. I will even help and hand out a quick recipe.
If you don't like the taste of orange juice, use water or maybe use half water and half juice.
1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice + orange zest
1 12 ounce package of fresh cranberries
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and orange juice. Heat on medium high heat until the sugar dissolves completely. Add the cranberries, zest and cinnamon and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from the heat and allow to cool, it will thicken up during this time.
