Cranberry sauce with whole berries for Thanksgiving: Try the recipe

You do not have to reinvent the wheel to make a memorable cranberry sauce, and nothing beats a homemade rendering of whole berries.

Ocean Spray, the American agricultural cooperative for cranberry growers, has shared its recipe with Fox News ahead of Thanksgiving.

“Ocean Spray’s first product was cranberry sauce, we were built on this iconic, simple yet mouthwatering sour, red spice,” said Chef David Ehrlinger, senior manager of Culinary Innovation, Ocean Spray, Fox News reports. “This traditional recipe, inherited from one generation of farmers to the next, was inspired by the beautiful sour taste that cranberries give, without anything getting in the way.”

While a go-to with turkey, Ehrlinger says its light acidity also goes well with pork or even in your next brunch cocktail. For two twists on this recipe, you can also check it out one made with less sugar and a naturally sweetened with honey and maple syrup.
