Cranberry Orange Sauce Recipe

Servings: 10 people (makes 2 1/2 cups cranberry sauce) 2/3 cup honey, or add to taste 1/4 cup water 1/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed from 1 large orange 1 tsp orange zest, lightly packed, from the same orange* 1 cinnamon stick 12 oz cranberries, fresh or frozen


In a medium saucepan, combine 2/3 cup honey, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1 tsp orange zest and 1 cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring to dissolve honey.


Add 12 oz cranberries and bring to a boil. Once boiling, adjust heat to keep at a low boil and cook 10 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally. 

Cranberries will burst and sauce will begin to thicken. A minute or so before turning off the heat,

taste for sweetness and add more honey to taste for a sweeter sauce. Keep in mind the sauce will thicken when it cools.

Remove from heat, discard cinnamon stick and cool cranberry sauce to room temperature then refrigerate until ready to serve.
