Make homemade organic cranberry sauce in just 3 minutes. It's best as a make-ahead dish, thicker and with a more even flavor after a night or three in the fridge. But you can serve my Intense Cranberry Sauce warm in under 15 minutes if you don't mind tart berry skins. My Saucy Cranberry Sauce has more water and sugar, so allow time for it to chill and thicken. See note for preparing whole cranberries for salads or garnish.
