  • Yield: 3 cups 1x
  • Category: side dish
  • Method: crock pot
  • Cuisine: holiday

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 bag (12 oz) fresh cranberries, rinsed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp bourbon (or a little more, just for good measure)
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract (high quality extract is important!)

Instructions

  1. Add the cranberries, sugar and water to a crockpot. Turn to high. Once the mixture starts to boil, reduce heat to low.
  2. Cook over low heat for 2-3 hours until the cranberries have softened and skins start to peel off.
  3. About 45 minutes before serving, add the bourbon and vanilla. Continue cooking over low. I like to add a pinch of salt at this point too.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool and thicken slightly before serving.
