Like many of you, I used to buy the can of jellied or whole cranberry sauce and no one at the table ever complained but we all knew it had a slight tinny after-taste.
Fast forward to a few years ago and I’m grocery shopping and I see a pile of fresh cranberries in plastic bags.
After all these years I finally pick one up, take a look up at the price (yeah I’ll buy it) then I flip the back of the package and what do I see? A recipe for homemade cranberry sauce!
This recipe comes courtesy of Ocean Spray and I’ve added my own twist…some orange zest!
Homemade Cranberry Sauce
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1 package of fresh or frozen cranberries
1 tsp. of orange zest
- Mix sugar and water in a medium saucepan; stir to dissolve. Bring to a boil. Add cranberries, return to boil.
- Reduce heat, add your orange zest and boil gently for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature before refrigerating.
