Reader Recipe: The Yummiest Cranberry Sauce Ever

Gayatri Batra

Thank you to Gayatri Batra for her recipe submission for "The Yummiest Cranberry Sauce Ever."

My five year old son, Jai owns this sauce! When he was in pre-school, he learnt how to make it with his teacher Ms Michelle Fulton for a class Thanksgiving Feast. He could not get over how easy it was to make and how good it tasted. He was completely bowled over when he was complimented on his culinary skills! That sealed his ownership on this sauce and has converted him into a cranberry lover. 

This year we’re going to friend’s house for Thanksgiving and Jai is the designated Cranberry Sauce Maker.
