Orange Cranberry Sauce Goodness

Cranberry Sauce

Years ago, I discovered an oranged cranberry sauce recipe. We enjoyed it, but it made enough to feed an army. It was also a little too cinnamony, with not quite enough orange flavor.

I’ve tweaked this for years, and have made this version for the last few years. I think I finally have it right!

Orange Cranberry Sauce Goodness

  • 1 bag of fresh or frozen cranberries (12 – 16 oz, depending on the brand)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 1 small cinnamon stick (3 – 4 inches long)
  • 1 small, seedless orange
  • orange juice
Rinse cranberries (if frozen, no need to thaw). Add to a medium saucepan. Zest orange onto cranberries. Peel orange and add sections. Add sugar. Stir, then add enough orange juice to just cover.
Turn on heat, bring to a boil and then simmer for one hour or until the cranberries have broken down and start to thicken.
Turn off heat and allow to cool enough to add to a  bowl or container and then refrigerate, uncovered, preferably overnight. The sauce will gel in the fridge.

My sauce, still cooling before being removed to the fridge. Once it’s cold, you can cover the container.

Serve cold.

It’s also fantastic on leftover turkey sandwiches! Yum!
