Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 12 ounces fresh whole cranberries

Preparation

  1. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and 1 cup water; bring to a boil.
  2. Add cranberries to water and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and boil for 10 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  3. Pour cooked cranberries into a wire mesh strainer over a mixing bowl. Using the back of a spoon mash berries to force pulp into the bowl. Discard skins.
  4. Stir sauce and pour into a serving bowl. Cool at room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Helpful hints

  • For a low sugar version use Splenda or other sugar-free sweetener. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons dissolved plain gelatin after starining sauce from cooked berries.
  • Use frozen cranberries if fresh are not available.
