Notes

  • You can make the cranberry sauce a day or two in advance, store in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature just prior to serving.
  • You can omit the ginger, if desired, but it won't be as flavorful.
  • Freeze the cranberry sauce in a freezer safe container for up to three months. Defrost in the refrigerator before serving.
