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.
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.
