  • 1 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries, rinsed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, dissolve 1 cup sugar in 1 cup water. Add all the cranberries and heat for about 10 minutes until most of the cranberries have popped.
  • Remove from heat. Cool completely at room temperature. The cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools. Transfer to a serving dish and either serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
