This simple recipe takes only a few minutes to make and is so much better than store bought canned sauce. Fresh whole cranberries (not the sauce) may be stored in the refrigerator for 4 weeks or frozen for 4 years. Do not thaw frozen cranberries before cooking. You may keep the cooked cranberry sauce in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
For large crowds, like a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, simply double or triple the recipe.
