Cranberry sauce, much like my beloved mashed potatoes, is one of those Thanksgiving staples that can completely make or break the meal. A good cranberry sauce is absolutely essential, but who has the time for elaborate over-the-top homemade versions? We know how easy it is to grab a can and run with it, but I swear we have something that's ALMOST as simple and FAR more delicious. And you know what? You could make it today and it would still be good for Thanksgiving a week from now.
