A great holiday recipe that perfectly compliments our stuffing recipe!
1 package fresh cranberries, washed
1/2 cup sugar — less or more depending on your taste for tartness
1 cup fresh orange juice
Place all of the ingredients into a medium sauce pan
On medium heat – bring just to boil , stirring often
Reduce heat & simmer for about 5 minutes or until mixture starts to thicken and the majority of skins “pop”, stirring often
Remove from heat (add 1 tsp of Grand Marnier – optional) and let cool, stirring occasionally
Once cool, store in a closed container in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Sauce can also be frozen & reheated after being thawed, with good results.
* NOTE * if you like your cranberries chunky, then stir very gently to avoid mashing them but be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan to avoid burning.
