Kitchen Intuition: Cranberry sauce

Talking turkey last week put me in a Thanksgiving frame of mind, but I also don’t want to abandon the discussion of sauces, so I’ll bring things back around to the topic with a classic for your holiday table: cranberry sauce. Most Thanksgiving tables feature cranberry sauce from a can, but I’m pretty sure this is because not many people know how incredibly quick and easy it is to make your own. And the canned and homemade versions just don’t compare at all. On one side, you have an overly sweetened gelatinous blob made with high-fructose corn syrup (and who knows what else), and on the other, you have a fruity, flavorful, textured treat—and you can brag that you made it yourself!
