Cranberry sauce has long been a tradition at Thanksgiving tables across America. Here's a mouthwatering recipe that will kick-start the flavor and provide a nice complement to your holiday bird.
How to Make Cranberry Orange Sauce
Empty bag of thawed cranberries into a medium-sized saucepan. Pour in orange juice and add sugar and orange zest.
Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Continue to gently stir until the consistency is similar to that of jam. (This will take about 20-25 minutes)
Transfer the mixture to a storage container with a tight lid. Place in the refrigerator. The ingredients provided will yield approximately 2 cups of cranberry orange sauce.
Serve cold. For a warmer version, reheat by pouring the sauce into a heat resistant bowl. Place the bowl in a stove-top pan with about 2 inches of simmering water.
