Homemade Cranberry Sauce (with Pineapple)

You can whip this quick and easy sauce up in a matter of minutes. It tastes great and is better for you because it's made of fresh fruit. You can skip adding the crushed pineapple at the end and serve the traditional sauce. However, you should give the pineapple a try if you have never had it. It adds texture and the sweetness of the pineapple cuts the sourness of the cranberry. It becomes more palatable for kids and people that are not normally fans of the traditional sauce. 


1 (12 ounces) package of fresh cranberries, rinsed well
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
* Optional- 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained well

Yields 2 cups (with no pineapple) and 3 cups (with pineapple)

Time: 5 minutes prep and 10 minutes cook time.


In a medium saucepan add water and sugar. Bring to a boil until sugar is completely dissolved. 

Add cranberries and return to boil. 

Let boil for 10 minutes.

Place in an airtight container and let cool on counter to room temperature. 
Or add the crushed pineapple (drained) and stir in well. 

Serve or store in the refrigerator. You can also freeze any extra and serve at your next holiday!
