My husband and I always look forward to serving this sweet side-dish on our Thanksgiving table, or anytime we roast a turkey for a special Sunday dinner.
I love this update on a classic, must-have recipe. The crisp bites of apple add dimension and texture, while the orange zest pairs for a nice, fresh flavor.
Mili’s Sweets Classic Cranberry Sauce
Here’s what you’ll need:
one package of fresh cranberries (12 oz./about three cups)
one large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
the zest of one orange
1 cup filtered water
1 cup sugar
Here’s what you’ll do:
Prepare your fruit and measure your sugar.
In a sauce pan, bring your water and sugar to a boil at medium heat.
Add the cranberries. Boil for 5 minutes.
Add in the diced apple and orange zest. Boil for an additional 5 minutes.
Stir every few minutes.
Your dish is done!
Pour the sauce into the dish you wish to serve at your table. Cover the top with plastic wrap and allow to cool at room temperature. Then, refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. It’s also very good if you make it one day in advance.
Add a lovely garnish like a slice of orange and the stem of a fresh herb. Serve with a slotted spoon.
