In my opinion the only thing better than homemade cranberry sauce is flavoured homemade cranberry sauce! Here’s a variation that uses oranges and spice; two flavours that embody fall and winter in my opinion.
- 1 pack of fresh cranberries
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 cup of orange juice
- orange zest to taste (4 tbsp)
- cinnamon to taste (1 tsp)
- cloves to taste (1 tsp)
Wash off the cranberries making sure to pick out any bad-looking ones. Add them to a pot with the water orange juice and sugar and let them simmer until they look like cranberry sauce. The cranberries will all burst and the pectin will gel up. I love watching it transform before my eyes. When it starts looking like a beautiful sauce add the orange zest and spices and take a deep breath as that beautiful smell starts to fill the room. Delicious! I can’t wait to make my batch for this thanksgiving!!
