Make Ahead 4 Ingredient Cranberry Sauce

This is a recipe I love. It is super easy and doesn’t require much. 4 Ingredient, 1 pot.

I am making this now, so this will be one thing less I have to do right before Thanksgiving Day. I like to have all my ducks in a row when it comes to being prepared. I have had things go wrong in the past that could have been prevented. Nonetheless I will be preparing things ahead and hoping everything works fine.

Cranberry Recipe

 

Remember I said 4 Ingredients: I used Fresh Cranberries. Always go for fresh if you can, frozen will work too. I used pineapple juice, but any citrus juice can be switched. Orange Juice a good substitute too. Zest of an Orange. If you have a fancy zester like mine use it. If you don’t http://www.wikihow.com/Zest-an-Orange there are three other ways.  Molasses or you can use real maple syrup.

Update: Thanksgiving and Veterans Day

I updated my background to reflect the American holiday that I readily celebrate. Thanksgiving. My Posts this month will regard preparations for it and holiday baking.  I also wanted to point out my Image in my header. I am a Veteran of the United States Army. Veterans Day is celebrated the 11th of November to honor all veterans who have served whether long passed or still serving. I want to honor my brother and sister’s in arms who I had the opportunity to deploy with in 2007. This was the entire company of the 56th Military Police. We were stationed in Iraq.  Supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. We went in during the surge. I am proud to have worked with these individuals. Thank A Vet today! Whether you are from another country or not, I’m sure the veterans in your country would surely appreciate the sentiments.

The reason I had the opportunity to go to culinary school was because of the Army. The GI Bill afforded me the opportunity to make my dream come true with little expense to me.

Sorry for the lapse from Halloween. Been busy mama helping with some different groups on our post. Playing powder puff, organizing teen nights, FRG (Family Readiness Group ) business. I seem to be more busy than usual. No snow yet, but it is  cold. I am working on Roasting pumpkins today and a make ahead cranberry sauce. Recipe posted in a few minutes. Enjoy!
