Cranberry-Maple Sauce

Aside from its traditional place on the holiday dinner plate, this sauce makes a great topping for waffles or pancakes, too.

Recipe Time

Prep: 5 Minutes

1 (12-oz.) package fresh or frozen cranberries (3 cups)

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or just until cranberries begin to pop, stirring often. Pour sauce into a serving bowl, and let cool completely. Serve chilled, if desired.
