3 ingredients plus 1 optional. You will need 1 bag of fresh cranberries.(BTW you can buy them in bulk now that they are in season and freeze them with the same cooking results) 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of orange juice and optionally 1/4 cup of Grand Marnier.
Nothing complements a turkey dinner as nicely as cranberry sauce.
The sweet tart combination with a bite of succulent turkey is oh so good!
So here is my favorite way to prepare it.
Easy as pie as usual.
“You will need one cup of orange juice”
Put one cup of orange juice into a pot then add in one cup of sugar.
Bring the orange juice and the sugar to a a boil briefly to dissolve the sugar then add in the cranberries.
Let Cranberries sugar and orange juice simmer for 10 minutes. You will hear cranberries pop. After 10 minutes you can add in 1/4 cup of Grand Marnier if you like. The sauce will be syrupy but when cool will jell.
This is a much loved recipe for it’s great taste.
Ease of preparation and (wait for it) you can make it ahead by several days and it keeps beautifully in the refrigerater.
Happy Thanksgiving Day WP’s.
Watch for the turkey recipe Thursday.
The bad boy is brining away already.
