Out of all the Thanksgiving dishes, from mashed potatoes to pie, my family loves cranberry sauce the most. Read on below for some of our most-favorite homemade recipes with classic and fresh flavors, every one of them a worthy addition to your holiday table. But if you’re running short on time (who isn't?!), we’ve also got a shortcut that’ll cut your prep time to two minutes flat.
Orange Spice: This four-ingredient recipeis a 5-star winner for a reason. It's simple and traditional.
Apple-Cinnamon: It takes only five ingredients to make the Low-Sugar Fresh Cranberry Sauce my kids ask for ALL YEAR LONG.
Mulled Wine: This cranberry sauce is about as elegant as it gets. But perhaps the best part is that it's SO easy.
Spicy Ginger: Bold fresh ginger is the star of this homemade chutney.
Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce: Pickled jalapenos add a quick kick to this vibrant side dish.
Bonus Shortcut Cranberry Sauce: Combine one can of whole cranberries with a can of jellied cranberries. Mix them together and you’re halfway there, with the lookalike consistency of homemade. Add the zest and juice of one orange, plus 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, stir well, and garnish with cinnamon sticks and thinly sliced oranges.
