We are on the official countdown to Turkey Day! I will be sharing some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes over the next few days. For several years I made this Cranberry Sauce. This sauce is yummy and has all the ingredients you want on your Thanksgiving table. But then I discovered the beauty of mixing bourbon and vanilla to cranberries. And now this is our favorite! Enjoy!
Bourbon Vanilla Cranberry Sauce
14 oz fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 T Bourbon
1 T Mexican Vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until cranberries burst and begin to break down, about 10-15 minutes.
Stir well and remove from heat. Refrigerate the cranberry sauce for up to 3 hours before serving. But feel free to get ahead and make it the day before.
