Our wonderfully tangy HOMEMADE CRANBERRY SAUCE is just the thing for your favourite holiday main!

The holidays always seem like the perfect time to enhance a meal with something flavourful and exceptionally tasty. This easy-to-make HOMEMADE CRANBERRY SAUCE is always well received. It also adds a hit of tangy fruit flavour to our DRY-BRINED TURKEY, CROWN ROAST OF PORK and OVEN-BAKED HAM.

Having said that, it also has another claim to fame: it tastes equally good with some of our more chilled dishes. Try it with our ROAST BEEF HOAGIES or our traditional TOURTIÈRE meat pie. Lots of friends love it with TURKEY POT PIE. Think of it like that ad for hot sauce, “This HOMEMADE CRANBERRY SAUCE goes with everything!

Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients for Homemade Cranberry Sauce

GATHER

Rounding up the ingredients needed to make this is easy. The two things you probably need to pick up at your local market or grocery store are fresh cranberries and shallots. Good news, we’re giving you the all-clear for substitutions. Frozen cranberries will work and if the shallot is illusive, add one chopped small white onion in its place. See, told you this is easy!

COOK

Cooking this cranberry sauce is a joy. Simply place the first five ingredients into a pot, bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook for about ten minutes. The cranberries pop as they cook and mix up with the other ingredients in record time. Oh, your kitchen is gonna smell mighty tasty too!

SERVE

Last thing before you send your sauce to table is to stir in the orange bits and port wine, then you’re good to go (if either you or a guest doesn’t enjoy the taste of alcohol, you can leave it out without worry). One final thing about this HOMEMADE CRANBERRY SAUCE is that you can serve it warm or make it ahead of time and present it cold. Lots of options.
