Thinking about Christmas dinner yet? It has flown thru my mind in a quick little blip! Thought I would pass on one of my favorite recipes, homemade cranberry sauce. Its easy peasy, so good and can be made a few days beforehand to ease the big day rush. Try it, you'll like it!
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
2 cinnamon sticks
Photo 2: rinse & pick thru cranberries. Throw out soft or mushy cranberries.
Photo 3: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the oj, water & cinnamon sticks.
Photo 4: Stir in the cranberries & cook (about 10 minutes) until they 🅿🅾🅿! Photo 5: The mixture may foam a bit. Keep stirring & keep the heat at medium & the foam disappears.
Photo 6: Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. The sauce thickens as it cools. Remove cinnamon sticks before serving or leave in for decoration! Store in refrigerator.
Alterations to try:
1. Use 1 cup oj for more tanginess.
2. Eliminate cinnamon stick.
3. Add a splash of Grand Manier.
4. Use water only and add orange zest.
You can do this! Let me know if you try making your own cranberry sauce.
