Grandma’s Cranberry Sauce


My Grandma’s Cranberry Sauce is the only cranberry sauce that I have found that I like. This is the original recipe with the exception of the sugar amount. Grandma used 3 cups!

With more natural pectin (it’s in the apples), this jells faster than plain jellied cranberry sauce. The apples also add sweetness, so it takes less sugar.

Grandma’s Cranberry Sauce


2 medium apples (I use granny smith)
1 12 oz. Bag cranberries, washed and picked over
1 cup water
2 cups sugar


Cut up 2 medium apples with peeling. Put in kettle with cranberries and water. Boil until skins pop.

Push cranberrie/apple mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl to capture the skins of cranberries and apples.

Add sugar to bowl and then put back to boil. Cook for 5 minutes. Pour into bowl.

Let Cool before putting saran wrap on and putting in fridge.
