Home Made Cranberry Sauce


Thanksgiving is Just Around the Corner

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I am starting to line up all my Holiday recipes for my family gathering, And as such I thought I would take this opportunity to share these recipes with you. I have made these recipes but included videos so you could follow along.

I would like to forewarn you that if you get the cranberry sauce on your clothes it stains terribly. It is best to wear an apron when making homemade cranberry sauce. As a special treat I have included a video on how to make cranberry sauce with alcohol. This sauce is awesome when it is cool outside and for the Holidays.

So if you wish to have a wonderful homemade cranberry sauce that will impress your family and friends for Thanksgiving then read further.

      Hi Cousin Fudd,

      When I get on these writing streaks I forget to eat and therefore I suddenly start writing about food as I am hungry but want to finish my hubs. As you can probably tell I am really hungry today as I am getting ready for Thanksgiving.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      I did not always like cranberry sauce. I suppose the main reason I passed it up for other goodies on the table. My wife makes a really great cranberry salad and as for the sauce,yummy.
