Whole Foods Homemade Cranberry Sauce Recipe
Canned jellied cranberry sauce may be a staple at your table during the holidays, however my family has almost always had homemade and jellied. I prefer the homemade version myself as a little palette cleanser in between helpings. You can even make this recipe a few days ahead, or weeks and freeze it to save you the time come Thanksgiving week!
