This simple cranberry sauce is made with just 5 ingredients. Make it in the slow cooker and save the stove-top space for all the other Thanksgiving sides.
Cranberry sauce is one of those things that come this time of year, I make a small batch every week and put it on all.the.things. I just love the stuff. I also sit here asking myself why I limit it to a seasonal thing? There’s no rule out there that says cranberries are only edible in November/December so why I don’t make it year round is beyond me. Truth is, cranberry sauce improves pretty much everything it touches…chicken/turkey dinners, sandwiches, wraps, even Greek yogurt.
Instead of the usual small weekly batches, I decided to make it in the slow cooker this time around. A simple 5 ingredient slow cooker cranberry sauce recipe that everyone needs in their fall arsenal. Not only is it great for Thanksgiving (and one less thing that takes up precious stove top space), it’s really just a great sauce to have on hand for everything!
