Easy Cranberry Sauce

Growing up Thanksgiving at my grandma's house we always had the weird cranberry sauce in the can. So this year I wanted to try making my own! I didn't know how easy it was! It's just like making any other berry sauce!

1 cup Cranberries
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar

(See the bottom if you need measurements for a bigger amount of cranberry sauce)

Pour the sugar, water and cranberries into a sauce pan and bring it to a simmer. Keep stirring it. After a few minutes the cranberries start "popping" as the skins break and then start cooking down. Keep simmering and stirring until desired thickness.

If you want to change it up a little, you can add different types of berries, like blueberries and even add a little bit of orange juice to give it a little extra sweetness.

This will only make a couple servings so if you are making cranberry sauce for a bigger group use, 4 cups of Cranberries, 1 cup of water, and 1 cup of sugar.
