Organic Wild Cranberry Sauce Recipe | 2 Ingredients & Quick
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!
What a feed! Thanksgiving and Christmas are the only 2 times each year that we stuff ourselves so much that all we do for the day is go for a walk, then eat, nap, walk, eat, nap...Ahhh
Everything we eat is 100% organic, and mostly grown in our own garden. This year we were very thankful for the great season and weather which gave us an abundant crop of carrots, beet, potato, turnip (I love the tops!), squash and many other yummy fruits, veggies and berries.
What I love about cooking a large meal is the leftovers! If you follow my blog you will know that we are not huge meat eaters and 1 roasted chicken can be stretched through 16 meals. Check out
So while organic meat may be more expensive, we know that it is healthier, and the animal was in better living conditions which makes us feel more content with our choice.
Here's our dinner today...
What did you have & what are you thankful for?
Roasted homegrown organic acorn squash, organic garlic roasted chicken & gravy with sprouted Ezekiel bread stuffing, steamed homegrown potatoes, carrot, beet, turnip & turnip tops and homemade organic cranberry sauce.
I'm also thankful for all of my followers and I hope I can inspire you to choose more organic foods, grow some of your own foods and live a healthful lifestyle!
Here is my simple 2 ingredient 5 minute organic cranberry sauce:
1 1/2 cups of washed wild or organic cranberries
(wild mountain cranberries/ partridgeberries work just fine)
1/4 cup organic cane sugar.
Place the berries (no water please) in a saucepan and cook for 2 minutes on medium heat until you hear them pop. Mash with a potato masher then add sugar a stir. Cook on high for three minutes or until thickened.
Makes 1 jar of thick cranberry sauce. If you prefer cranberry jelly you can strain out the skins by pushing it through a wire mesh strainer. Be sure to save the skins (Don't waste good organic food!) And use them to make chutney or toss them in a soup or smoothie.
