I love cranberry sauce. I love being able to make homemade cranberry sauce even more. Canning my own cranberry sauce? Heaven.
I’m not worried about all the extra ingredients, or if I’ll be able to find it at the stores on one of my two shopping trips to town each year. I don’t have to worry about finding just the right brand, or going to another store if I can’t find what I want.
If I want it spiced? Then I can make it just exactly how I like it. I’m hoping to share with you how super easy and quick it is to make up the day you want it for dinner, but for today I’m sharing how I just canned up the last of this year’s loot. I like to make 4 pints a year. This recipe will make just that (plus a little bowl for consuming right away).

It’s nearing the end of cranberry season here, and I’ve collected all the cranberries I can to make a last batch of cranberry juice. Cranberry juice should be a staple in every homesteader’s pharmacy stash—and let’s face it, this stuff is just really good.
When made at home, you control what goes into your juice, as well as what doesn’t. The best part about canning it is that you don’t have to put any sweetener in it at all if you don’t want to. Then when you’re ready to open it up, you can add it at that point if you want.
I add mine in before bottling, so that the Farmer doesn’t have to do any guessing if he opens one up later when I’m not around.
I love when fall comes around and cranberries are plentiful! We use as many fresh berries as we can, then dehydrate and make cranberry concentrate with the rest. One recipe you’ll see over and over at our house this time of year is our recipe for this delicious cranberry dinner roll.
Don’t grow cranberries? That’s okay–Did you know that close to the holidays you can peruse Facebook until you find a $1.00 off of cranberries coupon? Wait until cranberries go on sale for $1.00, and then get free cranberries. Does it get any better?
We make these cranberry dinner rolls in our home from about November through January. We have them at least weekly.
