EASY CRANBERRY SAUCE

RECIPES

What are your Thanksgiving Day plans? We’ll be at Mike’s mom’s house this year and I decided to keep things simple and make an easy cranberry sauce to bring to the feast. I had never made it before and wanted to try adding Vietnamese Cinnamon from Penzey’s that my Mom gave me.

I figured since cranberries are tart, similar to plums, this would add a nice touch of sweetness.

This recipe is super easy and absolutely delicious, so if you’re looking for something delicious to make without all the extra effort, give this recipe a try.
