Cranberry Sauce


1 package cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 - 2 cups water 250 - 500 ml
¼ - 1 cup sugar 50 - 250 ml
clean, empty jam jar
or mayonaise jar with lid
2 tablespoons corn starch or potato flour 30 ml
¼ - ½ cup cold water 50 - 125 ml

Making the sauce

Wash cranberries. Add water, and boil until berries are soft. Put in blender or Cuisinart and liquefy. (If you want a smoother, more jelly-like consistency, put this mixture through a sieve, and use only the liquid that passes through the sieve.)

Add sugar to taste. Heat until boiling. Put cold water in empty jar, add cornstarch, put lid on tightly and shake well. Add to boiling cranberries and stir until thickened.


Serve over Latvian Manna or vanilla ice cream.
