Homemade Cranberry Sauce – The Only Option

Homemade Cranberry SauceI love cranberries but am not real crazy about canned cranberry sauce or jelly. Homemade Cranberry Sauce is the only way to go, and it’s easier than you think! I’ve been making my own for years now. Here’s a tip about cranberries: they freeze well. I just throw them in the freezer so that I can have cranberries any time of year!

Cranberry Sauce


  • 1 pound cranberries 4 cups
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups organic cane sugar


  1. Put cranberries in a sauce pan.
  2. Pour in 2 cups boiling water.
  3. Bring to a boil and then cover.
  4. Boil for 3-4 minutes until the skins start popping (you'll hear them).
  5. Add 2 cups sugar.
  6. Bring to a rolling boil and cook for 5 minutes.
  7. Pour into a heat-resistant bowl and cool.
  8. Refrigerate.

The title of this blog is "Choose A Happy, Healthy, and Positive Life" but I don't want anyone to think that I'm perfect or that I've got it all together. I chose this title to help me become happier, healthier and more positive. I chose it as a way to remind myself and others of what we should strive for. I am actually proud to say that I am not perfect. After all, what else would I have to work on if I were perfect?
