This past Autumn, I went on several berry-picking expeditions out in the tundra. On one of the trips, I picked scads of cranberries for just this reason. There is nothing better, and simpler, than homemade cranberry sauce.

How to Make Homemade Cranberry Sauce

In a small pot or saucepan, combine 3 cups of cranberries, 1 1/4 c orange juice and a half cup each of honey and maple syrup.

  2. My mother taught me how to make cranberry sauce years ago. It has since become a tradition to watch the cranberries burst over an open flame with the little ones gathered round. The recipe we use is very similar, but uses sugar instead. I like the idea of using honey though, seems more natural. Might have to give it a try this year.
