EASY ORANGE CRANBERRY SAUCE

It literally feels like it was just New Years 2019?! Right!! I can’t believe how fast this year is going by! I feel like just last week I was writing my New Years resolutions. Which we will be checking in on those later this year hehe.

Anyways, that’s enough sulking for one post haha. let’s focus on how amazing it is that is almost thanksgiving and the most wonderful time of the year! All about family, food, and traditions.

This Thanksgiving season I am sharing my dad’s cranberry sauce. Some people seriously stick by the stuff that comes straight from the can… and like do you boo. I have never tried it so I have no comment but this sauce on turkey is perfection.

It also only takes like 10 minutes to prepare, can it get better? YES. You can also make it the day before, amazing.

orange cranberry sauce

1 cup fresh cranberries

1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp orange zest

In a small saucepan heat orange juice and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and stir often for five minutes.

Stir in the cranberries and boil for another five minutes. Once the cranberries pop and the mixture thickens you can add in the orange zest.

Take off the heat and transfer to your serving dish. Let cool in the fridge for a couple of hours (really just once it’s cool and thick but a few hours is best).




Ready to enjoy on Thanksgiving day with the rest of your meal.

Enjoy on biscuits, turkey and on your leftover sandwiches the weeks following thanksgiving.
