Easy Cranberry Sauce

Here is an easy recipe for cranberry sauce that our household makes every Thanksgiving. I think it has just the right balance of tartness, sweetness, and acidity. The best thing is that it only takes a short while to make, and lasts past all of the other Thanksgiving leftovers. You can have it with breakfast, lunch, or dinner foods.
