Cranberry Sauce

This is my favorite recipe in the whole wide world for homemade cranberry sauce. It’s super easy to make & the best I’ve ever had. 

The Best homemade cranberry sauce

I really think that some people are intimidated by the thought of making cranberry sauce from scratch, and instead – they open up a can of it.  With only 4 ingredients, & 20 minutes of time – there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of.

Even if you are a fan of the can, you should try this out. Who knows – it might just win you over.

Cranberry Sauce

Author Mrs Happy Homemaker


  • 12 ounces cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • chopped pecans to taste optional


  • Combine the sugars & orange juice in a saucepan & cook on medium until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add in the cranberries, and cook 10-15 minutes on medium heat, stirring every so often - until the cranberries start popping. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
  • Refrigerate until time to serve.
  • This can be made 48 hours in advance.
