For meats, desserts and more, this simple cranberry sauce is a holiday table must have.
12 oz fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 strip of orange or lemon zest
2 tbs water
- Combine 12 oz fresh cranberries, 1 cup of sugar, 1 strip of orange or lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of water in a pan.
- Cook over low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves and the berries are soft, approx. 10 minutes.
For a "saucier" sauce, add a shot of rum after cooking. Mix well and cook for an additional minute or two until sauce is the desired consistency.
