This Thanksgiving, try your hand at making home made cranberry sauce. I guarantee it will taste better than the canned stuff, and your family will be very impressed! Add a sliver or two of orange peel to the mixture for a delicious variation.
Boil 1 cup sugar and 1 cup of corn syrup or 1/2 cup of honey with 1 3/4 cups of water. Let boil for 5 minutes. Add 4 cups of fresh cranberries. Boil until the skins pop, about 5 minutes. Cool.
This recipe makes about 1 quart.
