This cranberry sauce recipe is so easy and delicious, you'll never use the canned stuff again. Dress up your Thanksgiving meal with this recipe.
- Serves: 10 persons
- 1cup orange juice
- 1cup sugar
- 12ounces (3/4 pound) fresh or frozen cranberries
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2If you are using fresh cranberries, thoroughly rinse them. Sort through the fresh or frozen cranberries and discard any that are crinkled, black, or otherwise not up to par.
Step 3Next, combine the orange juice and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
Step 4Stir in the cranberries and return to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat to a simmer. Gently stir occasionally until all the berries have popped, about 20 minutes.
Step 5Remove from heat and use the remaining sugar to sweeten the cranberry sauce to your liking. You can serve the sauce warm, but let it cool for several minutes to thicken a bit. For a thicker cranberry sauce, cool and then chill in the fridge.
