A few years ago, I saw a bag of cranberries in Wally World and noticed a recipe for sauce on the back. In remembering that my Texan grandmother always made her own sauce when I was a kid and I actually liked it (I can’t stand canned sauce), I decided to try my hand at it. Looking at the recipe made it seem so incredibly easy. And it is!
This is the cranberry sauce I made this year. It came out wonderfully. Master, upon trying it, said, and I quote, “This is the best cranberry sauce I’ve ever tasted.” *beams* I’m just that good.
I almost never follow recipes exactly and this one is no exception. Generally speaking, I research a food I want to make, then pull apart the five bazillion recipes I find for it. When I finally make it, I mostly just guesstimate taking a little from each recipe until I’m satisfied. So far, I’ve not screwed any meals up, knock on wood. So instead of putting the recipes I found up, since I didn’t use them anyway, I’m going to put the recipe I used up.
I want to note that next time I make it I’m going to use 1 cup of orange juice and no water with the hope that it will have more of an orange taste. I was worried about how it would come out that way. And you can use store bought or fresh squeezed juice. I just don’t have a juicer yet. Adding it to the kitchen slave’s Christmas list. Read more…
