Classic Cranberry Sauce

Classic Cranberry Sauce is the perfect food to brighten up the heavy Thanksgiving meal! The tartness of the fresh cranberries and the twist of orange is a great palate cleanse between bites of turkey and dressing! #SoNomNom4u #vegetarian #ClassicCranberrySauce

1 (12-oz) bag of fresh cranberries

1 cup orange juice

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

orange zest


In a medium saucepan, squeeze or pour 1 cup of orange juice, 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 cup sugar. Stir until well blended and bring it all to a boil.

Add cranberries to boiling mixture and stir to mix. Turn low down to medium low and simmer the mixture until it becomes thick. This will take about 8-10 minutes. Don't worry when you hear popping. Popping in a normal reaction of the cranberries when you cook them.

When cranberry sauce is at your desired consistency, remove it from heat and stir in about 2 TBSP fresh orange zest. Remember, the sauce will thicken as it stands, too. You should remove it when it is a little less thick than what you desire.

Chill thoroughly and serve chilled with fresh orange zest as a garnish.
