I have to admit. I used to be one of those people that bought cranberry sauce in a can. You might be one of them too. But have no fear, I am here to help you change your ways. I promise you this, if you try this recipe one time you will never go back to that canned, jellied stuff ever again. You will not believe how easy this recipe is. Here's how I did it:
10 ounce bag organic cranberries
1 tsp organic orange zest
1/2 cup organic orange juice
1/3 cup sugar
1 organic cinnamon stick
Directions: Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 18 minutes. Remove from the heat, put in a bowl, and set aside to cool completely. Mixture will get very thick the longer it sits.
Tip: This recipe is great to do the day before. I prefer the mixture at room temperature which is why I cook it the day of. But it is delicious when served cold.
