Michelle's Famous Washed Cranberry Sauce
November 25, 2007

I selfishly admit that I never bothered with anything other than canned cranberry sauce for the simple reason that I don't like it. But this year I decided to make it myself as something a little special for my husband. He loved it and so did my mom! (Others at the table didn't even try it as they just don't like cranberry sauce either!) I used half orange juice and half water, and because so many reviewers commented that it was a little on the watery side I boiled it for 15 minutes to thicken it. What I found, however, was that once it cooled it really thickened, so 15 minutes was a little too long. My guess is that boiling this for 10 minutes would be just right. This is a beautiful sauce, jewel toned, definitely fresh looking, fresh tasting, and delicious. Best of all, my husband appreciated the extra effort. It was such a snap to put together I now wonder why I never made it until now. I will never buy canned again.
