In the Kitchen with Gram...Cranberry Sauce!

A Thanksgiving Dinner without cranberries is, like mashed potatoes without gravy? Like watching "The Notebook" without tears? You know, it's just, like totally, a necessity, dude.

Gram has THE easiest cranberry recipe.

You ready for it?

Don't blink, you might miss it.

Cranberries, OJ, sugar, and a wee bit o' salt.

Boil 'em 'til the majority of the berries have "popped". 

Then, and this is the most difficult, most involved, horribly tedious step: let them cool. Just kidding about the difficulty, involved, tedious step.

Just set those babies aside until they've cooled. As they cool they'll thicken on their own. It's kinda miraculous.

Serve with your "AMAZING brined turkey" and enjoy!!!
