We can’t have Thanksgiving without Cranberry Sauce!
I have a super easy recipe but it uses canned whole cranberries and I’d prefer that the kids experience the “real thing”… So here we go, starting from scratch with a real bag of cranberries!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 pound bag of fresh cranberries
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
The kids can prepare this one by themselves with an adult helper doing the cooking and stirring on the stove.
First rinse the cranberries and drain in a colander. Look to see if there are any bad berries and toss them.
Put the water and the sugar into a heavy bottom saucepan. Have an adult put the pan on the stove and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the cranberries and cook until tender.
Sit aside to cool and then put in a bowl and refrigerate until serving time.
Happy Cooking with Kids,
