Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Oh, holidays. How you sneak up on me each year. One minute, it’s August; the next minute, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas come barreling down the pike like the delirious occupants of a speeding bobsled.
A bobsled that’s loaded to the brim with expectations of fun, food, and frolics with all the nearest and dearest. I believe I’ve taken that analogy much farther than it would have traveled on its own, but I stand by it.
Despite the element of seasonal chaos that accompanies all the celebrating, I look forward to enjoying our holiday traditions each year. Especially if they involve good things to eat or drink.
Time to whip out all my special recipes. Squash casserole? You got it. Roast turkey? I’m on it. Don’t forget the homemade cranberry sauce!
Of course I didn’t forget the homemade cranberry sauce. It’s right here, and you’re looking at it.
The nice thing about this 3 ingredient homemade cranberry sauce—other than the fact that it has only 3 ingredients—is that it is extremely easy to make. Novices and experts alike can make this in under 30 minutes, and most of that is just simmer time (very little activity required).
You’ll need fresh or frozen cranberries, some granulated sugar, and Coca-ColaⓇ. I stocked up on the Coca-ColaⓇ Mini Pack at Sam’s Club. With thirty mini cans (7.5 ounces each), the Coca-ColaⓇ Mini Pack goes a long way toward stocking the holiday beverage pantry and also providing plenty of Coca-ColaⓇ for recipes like this one.
