World's BEST Cranberry Sauce

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

Did you just fail at baking a pumpkin pie like I did?* No worries! Here's a recipe for the absolute BEST cranberry sauce you'll ever eat that is impossible to mess up.

It's a perfect accompaniment to your Thanksgiving plate. And it is amazing on a leftover Thanksgiving sandwich. You could even spread it on toast. Cranberry sauce non-believers will see the light after tasting this sauce. You will be seen as a cranberry whisperer.

*Yes, I did in fact burn a pumpkin pie. The Eagle brand recipe. It was a sad time. I don't recommend making that one. Stick with Libby's or go rogue and make your own.

World's Best Cranberry Sauce
Makes about 2 cups

1 12 oz package whole cranberries
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp orange juice
Pinch of salt

1. Empty bag of cranberries in a medium sauce pan with burner set on medium low. Reserve 1/2 cup of berries and set aside.
2. Add 1 cup of granulated white sugar and 2 Tbsp orange juice.
3. Cook on medium low for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Once cranberries begin to soften and sugar starts to melt, turn burner to medium high.
5. Add a pinch of salt and stir occasionally until cranberries begin to burst.
6. The sauce should start to be thickening at this point. You can mash the berries with a wooden spoon to the consistency you prefer. I like mine a little chunky.

Wishing your and your's the happiest Thanksgiving!
