I will keep this short and sweet, just like this five ingredient cranberry sauce recipe. If I were you, I’d appreciate it, because there are likely 300 things you still need to buy, make and do before four o’clock on Thursday.
The best part about this recipe is that it can be made up to a week ahead of the big day and no one will know (or care). But forget to make the cranberry sauce and someone will definitely notice (and complain). I know in my house, if there isn’t cranberry sauce on the table then it’s basically Christmas dinner. And that’s just boring.
So here it is, the most simple, beautiful cranberry sauce in all the land. Flavor it how you like – add ginger if you must, or pecans if you’re strange, but do me a favor – don’t leave it off the table.
