Homestyle Cranberry Sauce

Recipe provided by: Taste of Nova Scotia


3 cups cranberries (12 oz pkg), fresh or frozen
1 cup water
¾ cup sugar


  1. Put berries and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. When the first few berries pop, stir in sugar. Continue to cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until nearly all berries have popped. Bottle immediately and store, or (even better) serve warm.
  2. For Cranberry Orange Sauce, add peel of one small orange, grated on large holes of grater, when the sugar is added.
  3. For Cranberry Maple Sauce, replace sugar with ⅜ cup maple syrup and ½ cup brown sugar.
