Apple Orange Cranberry Sauce

Apple Orange Cranberry Sauce

My favorite cranberry sauce.

  • 12 oz (1 bag) cranberries, picked through
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 1 tart apple, such as a granny smith, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 T orange flavored liqueur (Grand Marnier or Cointreau)

1. In a medium (nonreactive) sauce pan, bring the salt and water to a boil. Add sugar, orange juice, and orange zest and stir until sugar is dissolved.

2. Add the cranberries and apple pieces and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened and saucy. About 2/3 of the cranberries should have popped open. Do not cook past this point or you will have JELLY :)

3. Remove from heat and stir in the orange flavored liqueur. Cool to room temperature and serve.

Can be refrigerated up to 7 days or frozen for a month if well-wrapped. Let come to room temperature before serving.
