Fresh Homemade Cranberry Sauce
- 16 ounces fresh cranberries
- 1 cup raspberry acai juice from Trop 50 (or any fruit juice)
- 1 cup light brown sugar
Put all the above ingredients in a sauce pan and mix together with a spoon. Do not cover the sauce pan. Cook this mixture over a medium high heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is reduced and the cranberry sauce is the desired consistency. You do not want to burn it, so stir occasionally while it is cooking. As it cooks, it will bubble and the cranberries will burst, letting their rich flavor blend into your cranberry sauce. When done, remove from the heat and let it cool down. Then serve with your meal. The cranberry sauce may be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.
