Cherry-Cranberry Sauce (for Beginners)

Jeanne Benavidez


I know that all of you great cooks will scoff at this recipe, lol, but my little granddaughter wanted to make something for Thanksgiving and everything seemed to be already taken care of except the cranberry sauce. Since it was late and we did not have any fresh or frozen cranberries, we decided to use what I had in my pantry. Of course, its nothing like the fresh, cooked sauce, but it will do, in a pinch. She was so proud that she got to stir it up all by herself. I have made it this way before (at the last minute) and everyone seemed to like it.
