Cranberry Sauce with Orange

Cranberry Sauce with Orange Zest

This is so easy and quick to make and so tasty, Try this and you will never have canned cranberries again!


1/2 cup water
Zest and juice of 1 orange
1/2 cup sugar, plus more if desired
Pinch salt
1 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries, rinsed 


In a medium saucepan, heat 1/2 cup water with the orange zest, orange juice, sugar and salt over medium­ high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the cranberries and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 7 minutes. Sweeten with more sugar, if desired. Let the sauce cool to room temperature before serving. 


  1. I LOVE cranberry sauce with chicken as well as turkey, so I always have some in the fridge. This sounds wonderful, and I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks! :)
