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.
