Oh hey, do you have a recipe for cranberry sauce for this weekend yet? I’ve been resting on the laurels of my chipotle cranberry mix but this year I wanted something a bit different and now this is my new favourite. This one is easier, too, which makes life better around the holidays.
Start with 2 12oz packages fresh cranberries, 2 large apples, and 2 large oranges. If you’d like a bit of extra zip, replace the oranges with grapefruit and go from there.
Wash the cranberries and set them aside to drain.
Peel the apples and cut them into small pieces (whatever size you would like to find dropped across your turkey).
Zest and juice the oranges into a medium saucepan.
Tip in 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar and give it a good stir.
Tip in the apples and cranberries and heat over medium, stirring often.
The liquid will simmer up and the cranberries will make very satisfying soft pops as they break open.
Once you’re happy with your ratio of broken cranberries, remove the sauce from the heat and allow it to chill.
This makes about 2 quarts, so plenty of sauce for dealing with leftovers!
