Thanksgiving Diary: Cranberry Sauce

It's very easy to make Cranberry Sauce: 1 lb cranberries (fresh or frozen); 1 cup orange juice and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Mix everything together in a sauce pan and let it simmer until it gets to the thickness you desire.
For those unaware, cranberry is a little bit bitter. And by adding the orange juice, its bitterness will be even more pronounced. So, if you prefer a sweeter sauce, add more sugar. I used light brown sugar. And I also like it thick. So I let it simmer even more.

You can also substitute the cranberries for any other berry, or make a different version with mango or fig. It is perfect not only with turkey, but also with pork meat and chicken. And the best thing is that you can also eat it as jam with bread, toast and cheese.
