orange cranberry sauce for the holidays

Image

Martha Stewart has several recipes for holiday cranberry sauce.  this one makes about 3 1/2 cups of sauce.  if you have guests that enjoy the flavor of cranberries, this one is also nice for turkey sandwich leftovers.  i found this recipe in Martha’s everyday food magazine.

the sauce comes together very easily in about thirty minutes on the stove-top.  it must be stored in the refrigerator, and can be heated before serving.

in a medium saucepan, combine two bags of cranberries, with 3/4 cup sugar up to 1 1/2 cups of sugar.  i used the smaller amount for my recipe.  add orange zest from a couple of oranges and 1/2 cup water.  season with salt.  bring to a boil over medium high heat.  reduce to a simmer and continue to cook for 20 to 25 minutes until the mixture thickens.  remove from the heat and add one cup of fresh orange juice.

  1. Karen, I am so glad you posted this recipe as I really liked it. It sounds really easy and doesn’t take any special ingredients. I have made a copy. Meredith’s sister, Megan, really likes cranberries so we always have to include that with our meals at Thanksgiving. This will be just what we need. Thanks, Sue
