Thanksgiving Recipe: Organic Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Cranberrysauce In the current issue of Sierra, the "Enjoy" section (toward the front of the magazine) features the results of our office-wide taste test of a variety of cranberry sauces. The homemade sauce won by a landslide; our staff deemed it "gorgeous," "fresh," and "delicious."

This might have left some of you might be thinking, "but making cranberry sauce is so much work!" That's why we'd like to share with you a quick, simple, and delectable recipe for spiced cranberry sauce that takes barely more time to make than opening up a can of the Ocean Spray goop. What's more, this sauce can be made up to two days ahead of time and stored in the fridge, leaving you more time to prepare the rest of your feast on Thanksgiving day.

As an added bonus, here are a couple tips to personalize this tasty recipe:

Make it organic: Buy a bag of organic cranberries instead of regular cranberries.

Add some citrus: Instead of water, use orange juice and then reduce the amount of sugar and honey added.
