WHOLE BERRY CRANBERRY SAUCE
1 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine orange juice and sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Add cranberries and return to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and boil gently for about 10 minutes, or until cranberries begin to pop. Cool completely at room temperature then refrigerate until serving.
I'll be honest, I could live without cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving, but it just doesn't seem right to skip it. And it does look pretty on the table. I'll take this homemade version over the canned stuff any day. It's so quick and easy to make my kids can do it with minimal supervision (and who doesn't need extra help in the kitchen on Thanksgiving?).
Who Dished It Up First
I took the recipe from the back of the Ocean Spray Cranberry bag and spruced it up with some orange juice and cinnamon.
