Cranberry sauce is a holiday staple that I haven't always enjoyed.  When I was little we always had the jellied cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving and I was never a fan.  I always put a slice on my plate because it was pretty, but one or two bites is all you would get out of me.

Fast forward like a million years to now and I am singing a different tune.  I am now a bonafide cranberry sauce lover!  Not the jellied stuff, though.  Oooooooh no. Still not a fan of that.  Now, I make my own whole berry cranberry sauce for the holidays that has just three simple ingredients.  Well, not including water, but that doesn't count.  Just three ingredient, guys!

Not only is there just a few simple ingredients, the process of making homemade cranberry sauce couldn't be any easier.  All you do is simmer the fresh cranberries with some sugar and liquid until the cranberries pop open and break down.  That's it!  So easy you could do it blindfolded (But don't really it blindfolded because I don't need you to burn down your house and sue me. Ha!)

Seriously, though, it is so so easy to make and the flavor is out of this world.  I like to use a touch of orange juice for a little bit of citrusy brightness I think compliments the cranberries so well.
