179. Cranberry Sauce, Too Easy

Sometimes a great recipe idea can be in plain sight and yet, we don't notice it. For me, the recipe was for cranberry sauce...not a cranberry relish, but an actual sauce.

I love to eat this tangy fruit sauce with pork, turkey or roasted chicken, but never made any or even thought I could make it. By chance,  I took the time to read the recipes on the back of the bag of fresh cranberries and there, in plain sight, was a perfect recipe for this wonderful, deep red sauce.

 It had probably been on all the other bags I had thrown out for years...yet, I never took the time to read them...just a little effort...all I had to do was to turn the bag over and read.

This simple sauce is multi-faceted...it is wonderful with meat, but also lends extra zip when drizzled over cut fruit, angel food cake and ice cream.
