We have the perfect cranberry sauce recipe for your Christmas meal, super easy and super yummy.
1 cup (200 g) sugar
1 cup (250 ml) water
4 cups Sujon frozen cranberries
Optional: Pecans, orange zest, raisins, currants, blueberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice.
Place the cranberries in a colander and rinse.
Remove any damaged or bruised cranberries.
Put the water and sugar in a saucepan on high heat and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
Add the cranberries to the pot and return to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until most of the cranberries have burst.
Once the cranberries have burst, leave the cranberry sauce as is, add other ingredients - half a cup of chopped pecans a pinch or two of orange zest.
You can also add raisins or currants, or even blueberries for added sweetness.
Spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice can also be added.
If adding spices, start with a pinch of each and add more to your taste.
Remove the pot from heat. Let cool completely at room temperature, then transfer to a bowl to chill in the refrigerator.
Note that the cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
