Who Likes Cranberries?

Not me!! 
I have learned to like them a little better than I used to.   I got this recipe for cranbery sauce from my aunt and it is super good!  Cranberries aren't that bad after all!  I thought I'd share it with you just in case you want this on your Thanksgiving turkey!

Cranberry Sauce
1 bag of fresh cranberries. 
 1 orange - washed, cut into eighths (Do not peel)
2 apples peeled, cored and sliced

Place in a food processor and chop until the desired consistency.

Place fruit in a large pan and add 1 cup sugar for every cup of fruit.  I got 5 cups of fruit so I added 5 cups of sugar.  (No wonder I like it so much AND I was making this while watching Biggest Loser!)  Heat until sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally.

This made more cranberry sauce than I'll use for Thanksgiving but it will store in the refrigerator for a month!

This has a citrusy, tangy, and sweet taste!  It can also be used in a Jello salad.  Add it to the cranberry or orange flavored jello.  Put it on a turkey sandwich or run some over to your neighbors!.  They'll love it!

I don't care for cranberries either...but this sounds yummy! I might have to try it. And it looks so pretty in the jar. :)
My grandma always made fresh cranberry sauce, and no one ever ate it! But she made it year after year after year.
