Homemade Cranberry Sauce

I got this recipe from my darling sister-in-law (Thanks Chandra!) and it couldn't be easier! I still like the canned stuff, but this is way better!

1 cup sugar
1 cup port wine (Cheap stuff will do just fine)
1 bag fresh cranberries

Put the sugar and wine into a sauce pan and stir while slowly bringing to a boil. Make sure sugar melts all the way. Reduce heat to a simmer and add cranberries. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries begin to pop. When the berries have popped it's done! Remove from heat. When they cool put them in the fridge. That's it!


  1. This obviously isn't authentic. You can't see the rings where it came out of the can.

    Aside from that this sounds absolutely yummy.


  2. Thanks Jeannette! I'll have to try harder for the ringed look next time!
