Homemade Cranberry Sauce for Thanksgiving

This past Autumn, I went on several berry-picking expeditions out in the tundra. On one of the trips, I picked scads of cranberries for just this reason. There is nothing better, and simpler, than homemade cranberry sauce.

    My mother taught me how to make cranberry sauce years ago. It has since become a tradition to watch the cranberries burst over an open flame with the little ones gathered round. The recipe we use is very similar, but uses sugar instead. I like the idea of using honey though, seems more natural. Might have to give it a try this year.
