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 is wonderful with meat, but also lends extra zip when drizzled over cut fruit, angel food cake and ice cream.
