Homemade Cranberry Sauce
The amount of flavor that comes out of just three simple ingredients is unreal.
- 12 oz. fresh or frozen cranberries
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 small orange
- Add the sugar and water to a medium saucepot. Stir to combine. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
- Rinse the cranberries, then add them to the boiling sugar water, and place a lid on top. Allow the water to come back up to a boil, at which point the cranberries will begin to pop.
- Once all the cranberries have popped, remove the lid, give it a stir, and turn the heat down to medium-low. Let the pot continue to simmer over medium-low heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the cranberries have completely broken down and the mixture has thickened. You can simmer longer if you prefer an extra thick cranberry sauce.
- While the cranberries simmer, zest and juice the orange
- Once the cranberry sauce has thickened, remove it from the heat and stir in2 Tbsp orange juice and ¼ tsp zest to the sauce. Allow the sauce to cool slightly, then serve.
