My Favorite Cranberry Sauce⁣

Here is the recipe for my favorite cranberry sauce that I make every year for Thanksgiving. It is super easy to make, and is always a big hit. It has a nice balance of sour, sweet, and bitter flavors.⁣


16 oz cranberries⁣

1 tart apple, peeled and finely chopped⁣

1 large orange⁣

1 cinnamon sticks

A few cloves⁣

Maple syrup to sweeten⁣

Sort through the cranberries to discard any soft and squishy ones.⁣

Juice the orange, and finely dice one half of the orange rind.⁣

Combine cranberries, orange juice, chopped orange rind, chopped apple, cinnamon sticks, and cloves in a saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat, then turn heat down to a simmer and half cover the pan.⁣

Simmer, stirring frequently, for a half hour. Add a little water as needed to prevent sauce from burning or sticking to the bottom of the pan.⁣

Sweeten sauce with maple syrup to taste, then simmer for a few more minutes.⁣

Serve immediately, or save for later, this sauce keeps very well.⁣

Serve and enjoy!⁣
