ingredients for homemade cranberry sauce

1 ½ bags cranberries (about 18 ounces)


1 cup sugar (more if you want it really sweet)


Zest of 1 orange


directions

Rinse berries and discard any bad ones. Lay out flat on a baking sheet

Cover with 1 cup sugar.


Bake at 350 degrees


In 10-15 minutes the cranberries will begin to pop. You will want to gently stir them and incorporate the sugar. Spread the mixture back out and continue to cook.


Stir about every 5 minutes until the berries are very soft and have all popped open. This usually takes about 20 minutes total.


Take them out of the oven and let cool.
