I use three bags of fresh cranberries washed and rinsed, add fruit juice to about 1 inch below the top of the big pot I make it in, add a couple handfuls of nuts, sometimes a handful of raisins, shred some fresh orange rind in it, add a bunch of cinnamon and brown sugar and honey to it and then let it come to a low boil.
I then stir and boil it some more, making sure to squish or “pop” all the cranberries as it’s brewing. Keep adding sugar until it tastes semi-sweet (don’t want it to be too sweet), and then let it cool. Mine comes out kinda slushy, not in jellied form, like the canned cranberry sauce, but everyone in my family raves about it. Can be served with traditional turkey dinner, delish with ham and served over waffles and pancakes too!
