Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce
A super EASY Homemade Cranberry Sauce that comes together in a few minutes with just a few simple ingredients, and the delicious addition of Amaretto for a nutty flavor compliment.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 3 cups
- 4 c Frozen Cranberries you can use fresh if preferred
- 1 c Sugar white granulated
- 1 c Water
- 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 2 oz Amaretto almond liquor
In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water over medium heat. Allow to boil and add in liquor. Cook for about 2 minutes to "burn" off the alcohol. Add in cranberries and cinnamon and continue to gently simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally to keep from burning.
Once cranberries begin to pop (about 5 minutes) you can gently mash and cook for another 3-5 minutes until the liquid dissolves and it begins to take on a jelly consistency.
Remove from heat and allow to cool before transferring to a sealed container. Refrigerate until ready to use (we make ours 2 days in advance!).
