Last night I made oven-baked cranberry sauce and it could not have been easier. It involved a 350 degree oven, a bag of cranberries picked over for twigs and unripe berries (mine weighed about 14 oz. when done), one cup of sugar, cinnamon & nutmeg to taste, and 1/4 cup of Brandy. This was mixed together in a pyrex dish (something similar to an 8x8) and baked (covered) for about 45 minutes. Stir, mash, enjoy. (I also added a little water once it cooled as I found it to be too thick.)
Now I need to bake a turkey. Until then my sauce is off to the freezer. It is soooooo good.
Go ahead gardeners and cooks, get your cran on while the fresh ones are here.
