The whole thing from start to finish takes less than 30 minutes, and you just can’t beat the intoxicating results, but those aren’t even the best things about this cranberry sauce recipe.

Just don’t forget to warn your guests of the presence of cannabis, and to ensure that everyone partaking does so responsibly so that everyone has the chance to make good memories this Christmas.

    How to store your homemade cranberry sauce

    This cranberry sauce recipe is absolutely delicious, but it is preservative-free, which means that the goodness of this edibles dish has a fast expiry and will only stay good for a few days even when kept in the best conditions. That is why it is important to store this cranberry sauce in sealable containers and in the refrigerator, which will also help to protect the cannabinoids like THC and CBD.
