Cranberry Sauce (Delight of Thanks Giving)

Cranberries are one of the fresh  fruits which I saw it for the first time after coming to US,although the dried fruit is well versed.This fresh fruit is available in the months of October to December .The first thing that comes to the mind about cranberry is the cranberries sauce prepared during Thanks giving  in USand during Christmas time in UK.I was very thrilled to prepare the tasty sauce and kids were thrilled in seeing this fruit (color and appearance) .The dark bright coloured ones are the ripe ones.




There are many healthy benefits of this tiny fruit,has many anti-oxidant and phyto nutrients that prevent heart disease and cancers, proanthocyanadins that porevent bacterial infections mainly UTI in women (anti bacterial) and anti inflammatory properties.So many healthy advantages of a tiny cranberry:-)) coming to the recipe,its very simple and can be stored for days together.




Ingredients
Cranberries 3 cups
sugar 1 cup
water 225ml


Method
Wash the fresh cranberries under running water and keep aside.Take a wide pan or deep vessel ,pour water,sugar and bring to boil.At the boiling point add the cranberries,wait for the skin to pop.Reduce heat,simmer for 10 minutes.That is the time when the cranberries ooze out the jelly like substance and the mixture thickens.Once the mixture thickens,remove from flame and allow it to cool.Refrigerate and sauce thickens during cooling.

NOTES
*You can add walnuts or pecans.
* You can add a  cup of orange juice or orange rinds,lemon juice or lemon rinds too.
