52 Weeks of Pinterest: Week 44 – Homemade Cranberry Sauce!

This year I wanted to go with a resolution I would have no problem sticking to! Then as I was pinning an item on Pinterest, a light bulb flashed on above my head. Ok, maybe not literally, but this great idea popped into my head. Those of us who are Pinterest users know that we pin hundreds of things a week, but do we ever do them? So I decided this year I would do one of my pins every week. At the moment, 52 weeks of Pinterest was born. Each week I will do something I found on Pinterest rather it be a craft, new recipe, organizing technique, or whatever!

This week it’s Homemade Cranberry Sauce!!


What You Will Need:

12oz Bag of Cranberries
2/3 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 TSP Cinnamon
1/8 TSP Salt

If you love cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving, you have to give the homemade version a try. It is amazing. I am pretty sure I could eat the whole batch on my own, right of the pan.

Add all of your ingredients to a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil. You will hear the cranberries popping, this is fun for the little ones too.

Once boiling, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. The cranberries will break up and let out juice and the sauce will begin to thicken.


After the cranberries are pretty much all broken down, turn heat off and let them sit for a bit while the sauce continues to thicken.

Most people like to let cool completely before they serve, I like it warm. This is a personal preference, do what you like!

This recipe is easy, budget friendly, and a way to make a plain Jane like myself feel like Martha Stewart! 🙂

Make sure to pin this to Pinterest to save for later! If you are not following us on Pinterest, make sure to do so now so you don’t miss out on some great pins!

Hope you enjoyed Week 44 of 52 Weeks of Pinterest, come back next Saturday for another attempted pin!If you don’t want to wait a week for a new pin idea, checkout our DIY posts, there are some great ideas there as well!
