Back in the days when our children were little, my husband and I used to make cooking cranberries, for our holiday feast, a family fun event.  Fun…how is cooking cranberries fun?

When cooking cranberries the key to when they are done is to listen for them to “pop.”  What a fun game! After the first time, the kids would actually ask, “When are we going to pop cranberries and make stuff?”

That little pop is a great way get the children interested in helping and you just might start a family tradition at your house.

Here is a simply yummy cranberry sauce recipe.

Cranberry Sauce

In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
