What turkey is complete without cranberry sauce? I’m not talking about the kind shaped like a can (although that is what my husband prefers). We’re making it from scratch. I never knew how easy it was to make cranberry sauce until I tried it. I’m talking about a simple cranberry sauce with a touch of citrus. Now most cranberry sauce recipes I’ve seen call for an entire cup of sugar. Who needs an entire cup of sugar in their fruit? Seriously!
