10 Minute Citrus Cranberry Sauce

10 Minute Homemade Citrus Cranberry Sauce!If you've never made homemade cranberry sauce, you MUST try it. It's so easy and tastes about 1000x better than canned!

If you’ve never made your own cranberry sauce, it’s so incredibly quick & easy and there is no comparison to canned sauce.  The cranberry flavor is so fabulous and it’s a little bit less sweet.  This recipe is for a whole cranberry sauce, meaning it’s chunky rather than just a smooth sauce.

I love to add in a little bit of fresh citrus flavor to make this extra special.  We eat it with turkey but my girls love to eat it on its own or with yogurt or ice cream too!
