Homemade Whole Berry Cranberry, fresh cranberries, pomegranate juice, chopped dried cherries, and chopped pecans.   The pectin in the berries brings it all together in an amazing dense sauce.

Homemade Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce has been on our Thanksgiving dinner table for years.

You may be asking the question why homemade?  Believe me, you will never buy canned ever again. Mother use to make it from the recipe on the back of the bag of cranberries.

I decided a couple of years ago that I wanted to enhance the sweet tartness of the cranberry flavor.

So I added pomegranate juice and chopped dried cherries along with some chopped pecans for some crunch.

The family loved the new flavor combination of my spin on an old recipe, and it has become our new tradition for our Thanksgiving meal.  Don't you just love making new traditions?

Especially with the next generation that is coming up.

I have to mention that one of my favorite sandwiches during the holidays is home-style turkey and traditional cornbread dressing with cranberry sauce, mayonnaise, and leaf lettuce on multigrain bread!  And the new cranberry sauce recipe will bring it to a brand-new level.

I am so excited and looking forward to the holidays!  I hope you will make my Homemade Whole  Berry Cranberry Sauce for your next holiday get together.
