I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is always a special time for us as a family because it was on Thanksgiving 7 years ago that my husband and I figured out that we liked liked each other in more than a best friends kind of way.
|(Look at us that day...we look so young!)|
I was responsible for cranberry sauce and rolls. The rolls weren't anything fancy...just boxed sourdough bread machine mix which I let my bread machine handle and then I just turned it into rolls. The cranberry sauce on the other hand....awesome (if I do say so myself).
I know it's too late for you to make it for your families Thanksgiving dinner this year BUT you can pin it and come back later. Or use it for Christmas dinner. Or serve it warm over ice cream or waffles (yum!).
Best Cranberry Sauce Recipe Ever
- 1 cup Orange Juice
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 bag cranberries
- zest, juice and pulp of 1 orange
- 1 apple
Pour your cranberries into a colander. Rinse and pick out any smooshed or ugly berries. Add berries to the pan and stir to coat in OJ.
While berries are cooking, zest the orange. Cut orange in half squeeze halves by stabbing center with a fork and pressing orange halves around it. Scrape out some of the pulp as well. Add zest, juice and pulp to pan.
While berries continue to simmer, peel, core and chop apple into small pieces. Once most of the berries have burst, add apple pieces to pan and stir.
Cook for 5 more minutes then remove from heat.
Serve warm over waffles or ice cream. If using for a turkey condiment, allow to stand for about 15 minutes, then pour mixture into a glass bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
