Crockpot Cranberries

It's Thanksgiving! Well, almost. I'm in the middle of preparations, and I'll bet you are too. So let's keep this sweet and simple. Bitter-sweet, to be exact.

(This isn't my picture. But that's what they look like.)

With so many recipes, I'm always looking for ways to cut corners and avoid dirtying more pots and pans/turning on my oven. So this year, I've employed my crockpot. The first thing I made was these cranberries, and they are awesome! Here's the super-easy recipe:

12 oz. cranberries (if you use frozen, add 30 min. to cook time)
1 C sugar
1/2 C water
zest of 1 lime

Cook cranberries, sugar, and water in crockpot on high for 2 1/2 hours. Add lime zest and refrigerate up to 3 weeks!

Told you it was easy! This only makes 2 C. If you've got a crowd, you might want more. It's really yummy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

That IS easy...and way more appetizing than the canned cranberry gelatinous blah.

Thanks for the recipe! I baked with cranberries today and it came out very well! You never know, though because they are soooo tart!

Oooh yum! I love cranberries and I'm always looking for mew recipes. I'll have to give this a try.

Yeah I made them, and my FIL who "doesn't like cranberries" said he could even eat them and enjoy them. :-) That's a compliment!
