While this Thanksgiving essential is ubiquitous on store shelves, making your own homemade cranberry sauce from VN contributor Bryanna Clark Grogan is easier than busting out a can opener. And don't worry if you still don't have your Thanksgiving menu planned—VegNew has you covered for the ultimate vegan festivities right here. Happy Tofurky Day!
Serves 10 to 12
What You Need:
1 12-ounce package fresh cranberries, trimmed
1 cup cranberry juice cocktail, or a cranberry and juice mix (like cran-apple)
1/2 cup sugar
What You Do:
1. In a large saucepan, combine cranberries, juice, and sugar, and bring to a boil. Turn heat to medium and cook about 10 minutes, or until all cranberries have popped open. Skim off any foam.
2. Cool and place in a serving dish. Cover and refrigerate until serving. You can substitute 1 cup maple syrup for sugar or add 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring.
