Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup or more of sugar
1 bag (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons fresh orange zest (optional)

In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar and cranberries. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes until the skins pop, stirring occasionally. Taste to see if it’s sweet enough for you, If not add a little more sugar and water if needed and cook a minute or two longer. Stir in orange juice and cook a minute or so. Remove from the heat and stir in orange zest. Serve warm or chilled.

Great served with roast chicken, turkey or pork. Also delicious used to make my quick Cranberry Crostini appetizers!
