Just throwing this up (bad choice of words) in the off chance you need a quick recipe for cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving. Preparations have begun in our house…the pot of potatoes is bubbling away on the stove, turkey breasts are defrosting in the refrigerator, and the cranberry sauce is cooling on the kitchen counter. It’s a holiday all about food, love and appreciation…how awesome is that?
2 12oz bags fresh cranberries
3 oranges – zest & juice
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C water
1 T white pepper
1 t ginger
3/4 C Craisins
1. Throw all the ingredients in a pot. Whack heat onto high. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cranberries have popped.
2. Remove from heat. Add Craisins & stir. Cool to room temperature.
You can make this a week ahead of time, but seeing as it’s 2 days before Thanksgiving, just store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container until turkey day and enjoy!
