Wanna wow your fam this Turkey Day by whipping up a delish
side dish? Grab a pile of cranberries, cuties, set aside 30 minutes and get
ready to impress big-time. Don’t worry—we won’t tell anyone how easy this
recipe is. Just sit back and let the compliments roll in!
Makes 12 servings
24 oz fresh cranberries
2 cups orange juice (freshly squeezed is best!)
1 cup to 1 ½ cups honey (depending on how sweet you want it)
2 to 3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 to 3 teaspoons nutmeg
Zest of 1 orange
Optional: 1 tablespoon cornstarch
First, you need to prepare your ingredients. Rinse your
cranberries and pick off any stray stems and discard berries that aren’t
looking too hot. Then, zest your orange and set the zest aside in a small bowl
‘til ya need it.
Ready? Let’s get this Thanksgiving side started! In a
saucepan, heat orange juice and honey, stirring constantly until honey is
dissolved. Add in the cranberries, bring to a boil, then turn the heat down so
the mixture is simmering. Add the
cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest and simmer until the berries are tender. Stir
Want a thicker sauce? In a separate bowl, mix 1 tablespoon
of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water, then whisk that concoction into the
sauce until it thickens. Serve warm or refrigerate until it’s supper time.
OK, babes, time for
the ultimate T-giving Q: Are you a jellied cranberry sauce girl, a whole berry
cranberry sauce girl or a no cranberry sauce girl?
