Cranberry Sauce Whole Berry

Today, I am going to share an easy recipe to make your own cranberry sauce.
We love cranberry sauce and usually make it fresh (that recipe will be coming this week too) but sometimes you do not have time to make it. Never fear, in case you are in a pinch, you can peek in your pantry and find your very own homemade cranberry sauce.

This would also make a great gift for Christmas.

Cranberry Sauce Whole Berry  

8 cups cranberries
4 cups sugar
4 cups water

Wash cranberries; drain. Combine sugar and water in a large saucepot.  Boil 5 minutes. Add cranberries. Continue boiling, without stirring, until skins burst. Ladle hot sauce into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust two piece caps. Process 10 minutes in a boiling - water canner.
Yield: about 6 pints



  1. This looks delicious! I made cranberry sauce for the first time a couple years ago and was surprised that I actually liked it. Growing up I only saw the stuff from the can and I thought it looked gross, so I never tried it. But the homemade stuff is really good!

  2. I don't know why I've never thought of putting up cranberry sauce, the berries come on sale after our Canadian Thanksgiving and it would be a very affordable condiment. Good recipe, thanks!

  3. This cranberry sauce is the best! My wife did a great job.
