I really hate to admit that before now I have never made homemade cranberry sauce. I really don’t know why not. This is the easiest sauce to prepare. If you’ve never made it you should give it a try. Pick up a couple of bags of cranberries that are in season now and you need 15 minutes time and its done.
Usually side dishes that are on the sweet side do not interest me at all, but this particular one has passed my lips and made me a very happy person. I love it for the holiday season and have made it numerous times thanks to my sister-in-law who shared the recipe. The fresh cranberries make this a tart dish yet the apples and sugar tame down the cranberries. As I type the word tart it makes me smile. My students ask me all the time, “Why do use such large and unfamiliar words?” I really don’t think that I do. “What should I say instead of tart?” I asked. “Sour will work just fine.” They make me laugh!
