I'm back, with some holiday-type recipes! Things have finally slowed down in the Free!Radicals household, as during the Christmas week, the Man and I spent every day doing at least one thing with each other's families. That's fun, but exhausting.
So, have a quick tutorial on how to make cranberry sauce! I have learned that a lot of people are attached to the jellied stuff from a can, but I think it is kind of gross.
Pick out the bad cranberries from a 16-ounce bag of cranberries. Usually there are only a few, but I had to take out a lot this time. Put them in a saucepan.
Add 2-3 cups of water, and 1 1/4 cups of sugar. You might want to add more sugar if you like your cranberries really sweet, but I do not.
Heat over medium-high, and after a few minutes the cranberries will start popping and turning syrupy.
Though the cranberries pop, you still need to mash the berries.
And you have cranberry sauce!
Normally I add some lemon zest, but i had no lemons. So it is just as simple as water, cranberries, and sugar.
Happy belated holidays!
