10 Minute Cranberries

10 Minute Cranberries
2 cups water
1 1/2 sugar
4 cups cranberries

Boil sugar and water for 5 minutes.
Add cranberries, boil for 5 minuets.
Let cool or eat warm. My son Sam loves to eat his cranberry sauce warm.

 This is an easy recipe to help you add cranberries to your meal.
Cranberries are a superfood!
One cup of cranberry juice can deliver up to 100 percent of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C - just look for the label that says "100 percent juice"

Bacteria don't stand a chance against these guys:
Several studies show that cranberries and cranberry juice can help ward off urinary tract infections.

Take advantage of cranberries high acid content and use fresh juice from the berries in place of vinegar in salad dressings and marinades.

Toss 1 to 2 Tbsp. into oatmeal, spinach salad, or other salad.

Cranberry relish really perks up  sandwiches. The berries also add a bright accent to baked goods,wild rice, and meat dishes.


  1. YUM. I love cranberries. They are the perfect blend of tart and sweet. I'll have to try your 10 minute cranberries.

  2. Yummy! I love how fast it is. Never thought about putting cranberries on sandwiches or rice, but it does sound delicious!

  3. I love it warm too, Sam! :-) BTW, ever since I watched the movie 'Shadowlands,' I think of it every time I see cranberry sauce. When C.S. Lewis asks his housekeeper if she can make cranberry sauce for the visiting Americans, she says, 'Well, you get me the cranberries and I'll sauce 'em.' (or something similar). I mention you in tomorrow's post, Carla. lol And YES, I love cranberry sauce!!
