Posts Tagged ‘Cranberry Sauce’

Up until a few years ago, I never liked cranberry sauce, and I think it’s because I only tried the kind in the can.

I finally decided to make my own and it was a game changer. I use apple cider in place of water, which adds a nice zing. The tarty-sweetness offsets the rich, heavy flavors of a holiday meal.

The recipe is easy. It needs to set up overnight in the fridge, so be sure to make it ahead. Depending on how many people you’re making it for, you may need to double the recipe. This makes enough for four.

Put a cup of apple cider, juice of one orange, and 1/2 cup of sugar in a saucepan on med-high heat. Once the sugar is melted, add the cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, orange zest, and cranberries. Stir.

Uncovered, let simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring often. Don’t be surprised when the cranberries pop and crackle.

One the sauce is thickened, pour in a container, and let it completely cool before putting it in the fridge to set up overnight.
