Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce
I like to prepare for the holidays early and get everything I need ahead of time and made as early as possible. Just leaving me the main dish and rolls. I like to use my crock pot or instant pot as much as possible. Because trying to finish all the dishes using the oven is chaos. So I look for recipes that free up my oven as much as possible.
The best thing about the homemade cranberry sauce is it only uses a few ingredients and you don’t need to turn the oven on. And I can bet your guests will find this easy orange cranberry sauce so much better than the canned sauce.
