Cranberry Orange Sauce
This cranberry orange sauce is a 5 ingredient recipe that's made with fresh cranberries, sugar, orange juice and orange zest. Cranberry orange sauce is a fresh, bright tasting accompaniment to any holiday meal.
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup orange juice fresh squeezed is best
- 12 ounces fresh cranberries frozen will also work
- 2 teaspoons orange zest plus more for garnish
- pinch of salt
Place the sugar and orange juice in a medium pan over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer.
Add the cranberries, orange zest and salt, then simmer for 8-10 minutes or until cranberries have burst. If you prefer a chunkier sauce, add 3/4 of the berries, then after the cranberries have burst, stir the remaining 1/4 berries in.
Let the cranberry orange sauce sit at room temperature until cool, then transfer to a container and store in the fridge until you're ready to serve it.
