I love cooking, baking and--YES (I know it's obvious) eating, especially at the holidays.
Butt, I mean, BUT I also want my recipes to be heart-healthy, at least some of the time.
And what could be better than these little red and Yummylicious berries? They make an amazing side dish.
I used to love store-bought jellied OceanSpray cranberries for the holidays but then I tasted true happiness.
I decided to make some sauce of my own and it is soooooooooooooooooooo EZ anyone can do it. No kidding. And did you know that cranberries are berry good for you?
The red berries may look like little candy-sized nibbles but these little lovelies are filled with amazing molecules that act like a wonder drug--especially for women. If you don't believe me, you can read all about it here.
So get heart-healthy and start your holidays out happy and healthy, at home. . . cooking. You'll save money, be able to sweeten the sauce to meet your own personal taste and be heart-healthy, all at the same time.
All you have to do is turn up the heat--on the stove. Boil these little babies in water until they burst open and then chill that cranberry sauce in the refrigerator until it cools and thickens into all that berry goodness - I guarantee it will be absolute deliciousness.
INGREDIENTS: * 4 cups or one 12-oz package of fresh cranberries (in the produce section) * 1 cup of granulated sugar * 1 cup water * 1/2 cup diced orange slices (you can use mandarin oranges or 1/4 cup of orange juice)
Boil over medium heat until the cranberries burst open (about ten minutes) then chill in the refrigerator and serve. But, I even like them warm.
