Have you ever made Homemade Cranberry Sauce? Growing up my Mom always served canned jellied cranberry sauce, so when I got married and became a home cook, I thought that was the only way to serve cranberry sauce. 

I thought that making your own Homemade Cranberry Sauce was intimidating. Then flash forward to 2019, and I finally made my first ever cranberry sauce. 

And you know what? It’s SUPER easy and not intimidating at all. AND it taste so much better than the store bought canned jellied cranberry sauce.

  4. Then tie on the decoration and add the printable tag – be sure to add directions to the back of the tag for chilling and serving

Now that you are done with the Cranberry Sauce Gift, who will you give it to? Here are a few ideas for you to think about – 

  • Hostess – are you heading to a party, I bet the hostess would love to have this Homemade Cranberry Sauce to serve her family or guests
