Cranberry-Orange Sauce Recipe

Yield: approximately 4 cups


  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1-pound whole cranberries, fresh or frozen
  • Two 2″ strips of orange zest (optional)Instructions

1. Make Your Base

In a large saucepan, combine orange juice and brown sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.

2. Pop the Cranberries

Add cranberries and turn the heat up to high. If you’re adding orange zest, toss that in now. Cook until the cranberries start to burst, then turn the heat down to medium to prevent splatters. Continue cooking until most of the cranberries have “popped.” This should take about 10 minutes.

3. Prepare to Feast

Transfer the cranberries to a bowl and allow to cool and thicken. Remove any strips of orange zest, and you’re done! Cranberry sauce keeps in the fridge for several days, and it can be frozen.
