Cranberry-Clementine Sauce

Thanksgiving is only a week away, and for a lot of large families like mine that means: potluck. One thing I'm bringing this year is a cranberry-clementine dressing made from scratch. It's both tart and citrusy, flavors that always remind me of the holidays. And while 90% of people are fine eating cranberry sauce out of a can, I say "why settle?" when this delicious sauce is so easy to make?

2 clementines
2 cups sugar
2 packages (12 oz. each) fresh cranberries
1. Cut clementines in half and, leaving on the skin, slice as thinly as possible.
2. Place in a pot with the cranberries, sugar and 1 1/2 cups of water.



Clementines...3 ingredients! If it got any easier, it would be coming out of a can.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool before serving.
