The cranberry stands alone in all her ruby-red glory in this simple recipe, adapted from here. Baked instead of simmered in the saucepan, this sauce tastes wonderful with roasts of all sorts, or even over ice cream. Try stirring some of this into your favorite orange marmalade to create a pink-hued marvel to spread over scones...or give as a gift.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes
Yield: about 1 half-pint of sauce
3 cups of fresh cranberries (frozen would work too, but you may need to increase the baking time)
1 cup of granulated sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place cranberries in a 8x8 inch square baking dish and sprinkle with sugar. Do not stir.
3. Bake cranberries for 35 minutes, stirring twice during baking. Remove from dish into a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
