Perfect for eating and gifting, this Walnut Cranberry sauce is easy, delicious, and perfect for Thanksgiving dining and for gifting teachers, co-workers or friends. Making this cranberry sauce ahead couldn’t be easier~ it takes 15 minutes! I make several batches a week or two before Thanksgiving and keep them in the fridge until ready to enjoy with a meal or give away as gifts. Folks love getting this sauce as a gift, as they can use it for their holiday turkey or other meals (yummy with ham and pork tenderloin). Enjoy!
