Hello, precious readers!!  Make sure you check out all of my Thanksgiving recipes!  I have “How to Brine a Turkey” that tells you how to make the most delicious and moist turkey ever!  I have “Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes“!  They are incredibly creamy and buttery!!  I also have “Juliana’s Turkey and Dressing“.  What is Thanksgiving without the dressing??  I will also have a green bean recipe coming soon, but today I want to share this incredible Cranberry Sauce with you!  It is delicious and makes your kitchen smell divine!  Pour it right over the dressing, if you like.  Enjoy, dear readers!!


1 cup water                               

 1 cup white sugar                               

1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries                               

1 orange, peeled and pureed                               

1 apple – peeled, cored and diced                              

1 pear – peeled, cored and diced                               

 1 cup chopped dried mixed fruit                               

1 cup chopped pecans                               

 1/2 teaspoon salt                             

 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon                               

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


In a medium saucepan, boil water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat to simmer, and stir in cranberries, pureed orange, apple, pear, dried fruit, pecans, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries burst. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature.
