Tasty Thursday: Real Simple Cranberry Sauce

I got an email from Real Simple Magazine that featured Thanksgiving recipes.  This one caught my eye because it contained ginger, which I love.  Even better is despite the cranberry sauce being very big on flavor the ingredient list is nice and small.  No last minute runs to the store to make this.

12 oz. fresh cranberries
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. fresh ginger

My Mom doesn't really like ginger so I reduced the amount in the recipe from one tablespoon to one teaspoon thinking it would be just a hint of flavor but I guess my nice, fresh, organic ginger was very much filled with flavor because it very present.  I'll make some plain cranberry sauce for Mom.
