Maple Honey Cranberry Sauce

Welcome to #CranberryWeek! As a New England girl, cranberries are something that I've always loved.  As a child, we went down to Cape Cod to see how they were farmed, such a cool process!

I'll admit up front, my guys are fans of the can. I've made a few attempts at converting them to the real deal, and they've not been met with much enthusiasm at all.  I saw this recipe on Taste of Home, and considering how much they like maple syrup, I thought I'd give it a try.

I didn't make any changes to the recipe. I was fortunate enough to hit the farmstand and grab local honey, but storebought would be fine too.  I love hearing the cranberries pop, and the house smelled absolutely amazing as this cooked.

I reserved a little orange zest to put on top when I served it. I liked the chunky nature of it, the guys mashed theirs down some more. Overall, I'm marking it down as a success, but they did ask if we were having "normal" cranberry sauce for the holiday. LOL

Thank you so much to Caroline for hosting, and to all the other #FestiveFoodies for sharing their recipes!  Be sure to check them out using the links below, and check back throughout the week for more great dishes!
