First off, if the cranberry sauce isn't in the shape of the can, it's not cranberry sauce. And I get the argument and concede, there are dozens of people who prefer natural and homemade varieties... but there are also hundreds of vegans out there who also don't know how to eat.

This is about as easy as it gets. You crack open the can, add a little water, and slide that gelatinous goodness out in a dish. Serve it up like that, or add a little color bedding it on a chilled piece of lettuce. Maybe some bell peppers on the side strictly for color. If someone takes a bell pepper, make them put it back. Hand them a jalapeno instead.

If you really want to impress, skip the plate and serve it in a martini glass. If you don't have martini glasses, hit the dollar store or I've always found good cheap glasses at Ross.
