Isn’t it nice when you can buy fresh cranberries in the store? Tart and plump and filled withcranberry_sauce antioxidants, cranberries are both tasty and good for you. This is our favorite cranberry sauce which we always have on our Thanksgiving table. Sometime we even serve this sauce next to a piece of meat on a fall night.

The sweet pineapple goes remarkably well with tart cranberries, the walnuts add an interesting texture and a little bit of cinnamon provides some underlying spice. This recipe is not overly sweet, but you can always adjust that according to your taste.

  • 2 cups of cranberries (1 pack/16 oz)
  • ¾ cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of crushed pineapple with juicecranberry_sauce
  • ½ cup of crushed walnuts
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Some fresh ground pepper

Add all the ingredients to a pot and bring to a simmer. Let cook for about 20 minutes or until the cranberries are soft. Adjust seasoning to taste and serve.
