  • Yield: 2 1/2 cups 1x


  • 1 (12 oz.) bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 c. fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 3/4 c. sugar


  1. Rinse cranberries. Place in a saucepan with orange juice, water, and sugar. Stir.
  2. On medium-high heat cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cranberries will burst making a festive sound. The sauce will thicken while you joyfully dance around the kitchen, celebrating the fact that this took no time at all.
  3. Serve cold or at room temperature. Garnish with orange zest if you wish.


• Make 2-3 days ahead for added sanity on Thanksgiving day.
