I started making this homemade cranberry sauce the year I was pregnant with my daughter. It is so simple and so delicious – plus it goes perfectly with pumpkin pancakes.
This is easy enough to make with children; little ones like when the cranberries start to pop.
1 package of fresh cranberries
½ cup real maple syrup*
½ cup unrefined brown sugar (demerara is my preference)
*If you don’t have real maple syrup, substitute ½ cup sugar. Do NOT use the fake, corn syrupy maple syrup.
Squeeze the juice of 3 oranges. Rinse the cranberries in fresh water.
In a pot, boil the freshly squeezed orange juice with real maple syrup and brown sugar.
Add cranberries to the pot and boil. Stir, periodically. Cranberries will start to pop.
Continue to stir and mash the popped cranberries.
When the sauce starts to bubble, remove from heat. Stir and let sit, until thickened.
