The holidays are coming up quickly, so you might be starting to plan your Thanksgiving menu. It can be overwhelming to plan a meal with a number of dishes, especially if you're hosting more people than usual. But you don’t need to buy canned cranberry sauce to save time on Thanksgiving Day. It’s quick and easy to make at home, and is a great dish to prepare a day or two in advance since it’s served chilled.
Here, we wanted to share one of our favorite recipes. It’s not too sweet, has a good amount of cinnamon and the orange pairs well to create a more dimensional flavor. Plus, it all comes together in about 15 minutes.
12oz bag of fresh cranberries
½ cup sugar
½ cup orange juice, if squeezing fresh, about 2 oranges
½ cup water
Pinch of salt
Piece of orange peel
