My one year blogiversary passed, and I totally forgot. What kind of blogger am I! Well, at least I ran it for a year. I had contemplated shutting it down. I will continue to try and post more often.
Happy 1st Blogiversary to me!
So, for the first post of the New Year, I have this cranberry sauce. Now, usually, at our Thanksgiving table, we have the jelled cranberry sauce in the can, and for as long as I can remember, I have been totally okay with that. What's turkey without cranberry, right? But, I wanted to try something new. When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be great for a beginner cranberry-sauce-maker...like me! It was a hit, and it has been requested for next year's table. Yay! Enjoy!
- 12 oz bag of fresh or frozen cranberries, washed if fresh
- 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup water
- 1 orange slice
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan.
2. Stir over high heat for 3 minutes, until sugar melts and water starts to boil.
3. Reduce heat; simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes.
4. Discard orange slice. Pour into serving bowl; cool completely.
