Cranberry Sauce success... finally!

This morning I am, after my third year here in Switzerlany, FINALLY making cranberry sauce During my first year, fresh cranberries were sold at the local Migros and Coop, but only until November. They were impossible to find (even frozen) after that. Large supermarkets such as Kaufland in Germany also often carry fresh cranberries this time of year. I found some a few days ago in Landeck, Austria. My neighbour was very kind to give me fresh pressed apple juice from the apples in our garden. I'm so happy to have freshly made cranberry sauce. Now all I have to do is pop it in the freezer and wait for Christmas! I'll probably pick up a frozen whole turkey from Migros at Christmas time or a fresh one from Coop. Now all I have to do is figure out the stuffing

Here's the recipe I use if anyone else stumbles across fresh cranberries and wants to plan ahead for the holidays... En Guete

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...y-Sauce-100322


1 12-ounce bag cranberries
1 3/4 cups apple cider or juice
3/4 cup honey
2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
6 whole cloves
1 bay leaf
Pinch of salt
print a shopping list for this recipe

preparation

Combine all ingredients in heavy large saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat. Simmer until berries burst and sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Remove cinnamon sticks, cloves and bay leaf. Refrigerate sauce until cold. (Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and keep refrigerated.)

Thanks for the recipe.

But for anyone who cant find fresh cranberries, or cant (be bothered to) cook, Migros has this:


I know some may dispute that preiselbeeren aren't exactly the same as cranberries - but close enough for me.

In the case that someone might not have time to actually make the cranberry sauce right now in preparation for Christmas, fresh cranberries (whole or sliced) can be safely frozen and kept for up to a year without any preparation. See link here.

Hey Timow, I thought that was a kind of jam? For my first year, I just used dried cranberries *lol* Last year, I didn't even see fresh cranberries at any point so I did the Swiss Christmas thing And yes, it states on the package that the bag can be used now or frozen for later

The only pic. I could find does indeed have compot on it, whereas the jar I have doesn't - but the label is the same otherwise.
It is also found near the ketchup, mayo, mustard section and not in the jam section.
At the moment it is also to be found by a promotion cabinet with ham and venison meals.

The Lingonberry jam from IKEA works well in a pinch.
