Instructions

  1. Rinse one bag of cranberries and toss out any duds
  2. Over a medium to low heat, cook the cranberries in a saucepan with the water
  3. After about 10 minutes try to mash the cranberries with a hand potato masher. They should burst easily. If they don't, be patient, stir and wait few more minutes.
  4. Once you can mash the cranberries you will see it is very chunky and thick. This is perfect. Remove from heat and cool.

This can be used for:

  1. Oatmeal mix-in
  2. Tart fruit smoothie with fat-free Greek yogurt and an orange with a little zest
  3. Side dish on Thanksgiving day that's better than cranberry slop
  4. Sandwich spread for Thanksgiving leftovers
