Mom's Classic Cranberry Sauce

Total Time

Never eat canned cranberry sauce again! This is so easy. Serve it room temp or cool. Leftovers freeze well.


  1. Dissolve sugar in boiling water.
  2. Add berries.
  3. Cover and bring to simmering.
  4. Let berries pop, about 10 minutes.
  5. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate.

This was absolutely wonderful... simple to make... not too sweet... not too tart... perfect!!! I threw in frozen cranberries and they held their shape beautifully. Thanks for telling me that this freezes well also! Good to know.
