Everyone puts orange juice in their homemade cranberry sauce. It’s delicious, yes, but I have an inherent opposition to doing things the way other people have always done them for lack of another option. Well, here’s your other cranberry sauce option. Here’s your (dare I suggest it?) better cranberry sauce option.
- 1 12-oz. bag frozen whole cranberries $2
- 1 cup sugar Pantry
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar Pantry
- pinch salt Pantry
- 3/4 cup water
Total Cost of ingredients $2
Combine all ingredients in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Cover and bring to a light boil. Tilt lid so a bit of air can escape and reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 20-22 minutes, or until cranberries break down and a thick sauce forms.
Allow to cool slightly before serving (or chill if you prefer cold cranberry sauce).
Makes about 1 1/2 cups cranberry sauce.
