Three ingredients. Three steps. Cranberry sauce doesn't get any simpler, or more delicious. We'd say it goes great on leftover turkey sandwiches, but there won't be any leftovers.
Cranberry-Orange Sauce Recipe
Yield: approximately 4 cups
In a large saucepan, combine orange juice and brown sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.
Add cranberries and turn the heat up to high. If you're adding orange zest, toss that in now. Cook until the cranberries start to burst, then turn the heat down to medium to prevent splatters. Continue cooking until most of the cranberries have “popped." This should take about 10 minutes.
Transfer the cranberries to a bowl and allow to cool and thicken. Remove any strips of orange zest, and you're done! Cranberry sauce keeps in the fridge just fine for several days, and can be frozen.
