Making your own cranberry sauce from scratch is so easy, and you can make it days ahead. With only THREE ingredients plus optional flavour suggestions… you’ll never want to buy store-bought again!
Preparation time: 22minutes
- 12 ounces (340 g) frozen or fresh cranberries
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) orange juice
- 1 strip orange rind or 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional for added citrus flavour)
How To Prepare
Transfer 1/2 cup of cranberries a small bowl, set aside.
Cook remaining ingredients in a saucepan over low heat, while stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the cranberries are soft (about 10 minutes).
Increase the heat to medium and cook until the cranberries burst (a further 10 minutes).
Reduce heat to low and stir in the reserved cranberries. Add in a couple tablespoons of extra water, if needed.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
