Simple Cranberry Sauce

Serving Size: 4 to 6

My favorite regular family dinner is “Thanksgiving.” I make it at least once a month and can prepare it from beginning to end in less than an hour-and-a-half. Make the cranberry sauce first so it has time to chill.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup organic or vegan cane sugar
  • One 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries (use frozen if out of season)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the water and sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the cranberries and cinnamon.
  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries burst. Simmer for 10 more minutes.
  3. Transfer to a bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 45 minutes or in the refrigerator until chilled.
  4. Serve and save any extras for another day (although we never ever have any leftovers of this sauce).
