Gluten Free Cranberry Sauce

This is your basic cranberry sauce. I like to cook it down until it becomes a smoother “jam-like” consistency.  This sauce is very versatile, I like to serve it up on banana pancakes with toasted walnuts, or mix some into buttercream for a vibrant and fresh frosting.  Makes a great addition to a cheese course as well. And most importantly it will be on the Thanksgiving table.

    Thanks for the basic recipe! Especially given that it uses honey instead of white sugar. I’m going to assume you mean a 1/2 CUP of honey. Happy Thanksgiving!
