Simple Cranberry Sauce

MAKES 4 Cups

12 ounces fresh cranberries
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup fresh orange juice

Place cranberries in a strainer and rinse. Then pick through them for any bad cranberries. Remove any sticks or stems.

Combine ingredients in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. As the cranberry sauce comes to a boil, the berries will begin to burst, about 5-7 minutes.

Reduce the heat to simmer. Stir occasionally as the cranberry sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.

Refrigerate and serve cold or at room temperature.

DONNA'S NOTES: If you prefer your cranberry sauce smooth, you can use a stick blender in the pot and blend until smooth. You can also transfer the sauce to a blender and blend until smooth.
