Gary Vaynerchuk prefers "real cranberry sauce" with chunks of whole fruit over the smooth canned-and-jellied kind.

  1. 1 pound fresh or frozen cranberries
  2. 1 1/2 cups apple juice
  3. 1 cup sugar
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries with the apple juice and sugar. Simmer over low heat until the berries burst and the sauce is jammy, about 20 minutes. Transfer the sauce to a heatproof bowl, let cool, then refrigerate until chilled.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 1 month.
