Seeing as how I'm posting a cranberry sauce recipe, this post might be a little late, or just extremely early. But fresh cranberries are still available in the super market right now, and I love me some cranberry sauce.
Start by combining the sugar and water in a sauce pan, and bring to a boil.
Then add the cranberries and continue boiling until all of the cranberries have popped. Then it's on to canning!
Of course, you don't have to can the cranberry sauce if you want some right away.
