"Take a cran stand!"

It was once a yearly tradition for Adam to give out his recipe for fresh cranberry sauce right around Thanksgiving, stating that he far preferred it to canned cranberry jelly.

On the 2002-11-26 episode with System of a Down, Adam outlined the general recipe:

You will need

as well as a saucepan with a lid

  1. open sack of cranberries
  2. pour into saucepan
  3. add water
  4. add sugar
  5. put the lid on the saucepan
  6. put it on a medium heat
  7. cook for five minutes and it is done

When Dr. Drew asked if a full cup of sugar was necessary, Adam reminded him that cranberries are very tart. Adam said that he starts with 2/3 cup of sugar since he prefers it on the tart side and that other people could do the same thing and work in a little more sugar, seasoned to taste.

When Dr. Drew asked about adding anything else like walnuts, Adam stated that he doesn't like to get too fancy with additional ingredients though he will add a little zest of lemon or orange/lemon rind as it is pleasing to the eye as well as the palette.

Author's notes: I have been making this recipe for roughly a decade now and I'd like to make some additional suggestions.
