Cherry Cranberry Sauce

This sauce is served at Thanksgiving every year. Cherries give tart cranberries a slightly sweet flavor. It is wonderful served alongside turkey, pork and ham.


3 1/2 cups (14 servings)


1 1/2 cups granulated (white) sugar
1 1/2 cups water
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (1 pound)
1 (14.5 ounce) can pitted tart cherries, drained


In a large saucepan, cook sugar and water over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add cranberries and cherries. Bring to a boil. Cook uncovered, until cranberries begin to pop, about 6 minutes. Reduce heat; cook 20 minutes longer or until thickened. Pour into a serving dish. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.
