My Homemade Cranberry Sauce.

Delicious homemade cranberry sauce.

Yo! This is my first time making and tasting cranberry sauce and can I say it is so delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹.

I made mine more tart than sweet though and it was a good move on my part (self high give ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿพ) ๐Ÿ˜‚.

This will be my first thanksgiving as itโ€™s not a holiday we celebrate in Nigeria and so I am trying new things and going into the holiday with an open mind. I started preparations a day ahead to give me time to experiment and decide on recipes I ca afford to try lol.

But anyway this recipe is so easy, quick and affordable to make #mealsonabudget ๐Ÿ˜Ž. If I can do it so can you.

Ingredients :-

1 bag of fresh cranberries

3/4 cup of brown sugar

1 Tbsp of white sugar

1 lemon ๐Ÿ‹ (squeezed)

1 tsp of lemon zest

2 green apples

1 cup of cranberry grape juice

Make it :-

Rinse the fresh cranberries, pour that in the pot along with the sugars and the juice. Zest your lemon ๐Ÿ‹ and squeeze in the juice without the seeds.

Stir everything together and cook on low heat for about 30mins.

Mine took that long because I had it in really low heat.

Keep an eye on it when it starts to thicken and ensure it doesn’t start to burn.

Be careful when tasting the sauce because it will be scalding hot at this point.

When most of the cranberries pop and look a bit mashed you can then it off and serve it with your pastry ๐Ÿฅฎ of choice when it cools down.

Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰.
