Home Made Cranberry Sauce

Happy New Year! I thought it would be appropriate to end the holidays with the very same meal that started the holidays; turkey. I just happened to have one in my freezer from a Thanksgiving sale — perfect for New Year’s Day Dinner. Cranberry sauce is a must for every roasted turkey dinner, and I’m not a big fan of the canned cranberry sauce, so I made my own. I found that most recipes seem to have a lot of sugar in them. This time I tried my own mixture which would also help to use up some of the some fresh oranges from florida. I think it was a hit too – it’s been used on toast as a jelly, on sandwiches and in salads.
