One thing to know about me; I don’t cook. When I do cook, it is in the most basic way possible. I eat at Chipotle 3 times a week, cooking is not my forte. However, I have always loved cranberry sauce. For as long as I could remember, I was one of the only people in my family who loved it, and I would demand it every year at Thanksgiving. This year I decided – Hey, it’s pretty simple! Could I really mess this up? Spoiler; it actually came out really well! Someone call Gordon Ramsay!
Crazy Easy Cranberry Sauce Recipe
If you somehow mess this up, maybe it’s not time for college yet!
Step 1: you will need whole cranberries, sugar, water and lime.
Step 2: Put one cup of water into a pot (I was later told by my mother that the cranberries are supposed to go first- but does that really matter?)
Step 3: Add in 3 cups of cranberries.
Step 4: Add one cup of sugar
Step 5: Stir! You’re going to alternate between stirring your sauce and covering the pot with a lid and letting it sit every few minutes. Make sure your heat isn’t too high, my sister said it should be on a “simmer” whatever that means. Continue this until your cause starts to get thicker.
Step 6: Add in some lime juice for some razzle dazzle, just before your sauce is almost done.
Step 7: Keep stirring until the berries have popped and you’re cause is looking thick. Pour it out into a bowl and you’re all done! Can be served hot, or you can let it cool down.
