Thanksgiving Inspo: Cranberry Sauce Recipe

One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions is making cranberry sauce with my mom. We always make it the night before the holiday. Anyone can perfect this recipe; it is super fun and easy to make! My mom likes to use the Ocean Spray recipe, which is detailed below!

What You Will Need:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 package of Ocean Spray cranberries
  • 1 medium saucepan


First, you will need to combine the sugar and water into a saucepan. Once the sugar and water mixture boils, add fresh (or frozen) cranberries. After that, turn down the heat and allow the cranberries to boil for approximately 10 minutes while stirring. Lastly, cover your sauce and put it in the refrigerator until dinnertime!
