This easy cranberry sauce recipe is fast, delicious, and the perfect addition to turkey or roast dinners! Great for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or anytime you want to add a sweet and tart pop of flavor.
Pick out any cranberries that may be past their prime and discard them.
Add the cranberries, water, sugar, and cinnamon stick to a medium-sized saucepan. Give it a good stir.
Simmer the mixture over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or so, until the cranberries start to pop and the sauce has started to thicken (stir occasionally). At that point, reduce the heat and continue simmering until the sauce has thickened to your liking (about 10-12 minutes total).
Remove cinnamon stick and let the cranberry sauce cool. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
