This is the BEST cranberry sauce recipe, it’s my go-to every year. More favorite Thanksgiving sides include Garlic Mashed potatoes and Roasted Heirloom Carrots with Feta, Truffle and Lemon. You can see all my other Thanksgiving Recipes here.

Cranberry sauce can be served chilled or at room temperature. I just love how fruit spreads can be such a lovely compliment to a meal. I especially love it with turkey or on a roasted turkey breast sandwich. The day after Thanksgiving, if there’s leftover turkey, I’ll slice it and out it on a whole wheat baguette with some broccoli sprouts – delicious. It’s also great with a pork roast or roasted chicken. Other favorites are Crock Pot Applesauce, Slow Cooker Cranberry Pear Butter, Slow Cooker Apple Butter, and Pumpkin Butter.

Make it a few days ahead, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
