I made this homemade cranberry sauce for a client’s Thanksgiving dinner a long time ago. Everyone fell in love with it!

The guests were passing the bowl around until there was nothing left of it. It is sweet and tart, the chunky texture, and the Autumn aromas are the staple of the holiday festivities. It couldn’t be more delicious.

Though I don’t eat animals, I still enjoy this sauce with tofu or tempeh. This past summer I was using the exact same recipe for popsicles!

This recipe is the base I always use, it doesn’t have spices, seasoning, or any garlic or herbs. You can add salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, whole cloves,… make your own version of it! I am sure it will be fabulous!

I often add some sprigs of rosemary, cloves, and cinnamon.
