I was one of those people who thought they hated cranberry sauce. I wouldn’t touch it with a five foot pole at Thanksgiving. The problem was that we always had that stuff out of a can. It turns out that I actually love cranberry sauce when it is homemade. This recipe for Instant Pot cranberry sauce will change your mind as well!
I know it can be tempting just to open up a can of cranberries during Thanksgiving when you have so much to prepare and cook already, but I promise you that if you try this out in your electric pressure cooker, you will have amazing tasting cranberries in just 8 minutes of cooking time!
It is no secret how much I love my Instant Pot. I have used mine for just about everything from soups to desserts. When you are making a big meal for your family, it is very nice to free up a burner on the stove by using your pressure cooker. It is especially helpful for a big family meal like Thanksgiving or Christmas.
