  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, granulated or brown sugar, or your preferred sweetener (adding more/less to taste)
  • optional add-ins: a splash or bourbon or red wine, orange zest, a pinch of ground ginger, a pinch of cinnamon and cloves, some chopped walnuts, or a splash of vanilla extract.
Fresh Cranberries
    1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of a slow cooker and stir to combine.
    2. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-8 hours, or until the cranberries have popped open and the sauce is bubbly.
    3. Taste and stir in any extra sweetener or add-ins if desired.  Serve warm.  (Heads up that the sauce will thicken considerably as it cools.)
