Since Thanksgiving is coming oh so soon, I thought I’d the very best cranberry sauce recipe in case you need something to add to your meal on Thursday.
My friend J Bo (first told you about her here), shared this recipe with us while we were living in Maryland. Although we were far away from family, we got to spend Thanksgiving with great friends and J Bo delicious cranberry sauce :)
The best part is that its really easy. WAIT! Actually, the best part is when you have leftovers and you can make cranberry crisp… for breakfast.
How to Make Fresh Cranberry Sauce
4 packages cranberries (3 lbs)
The rind of 3 oranges
One cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
Pick over and wash cranberries and place in a roomy saucepan with sugar, brown sugar, orange rinds, orange juice, and cinnamon.
Bring to a boil, stir occasionally, cover and boil just until the cranberries burst - four to five minutes. Sauce jells when cold.
(For me it was sorta hard to tell when the cranberries burst. It looks like this.)
Makes about 2 quarts (and makes your house smell great!).
