Make-It Recipe: Spiced Orange Cranberry Sauce

Since this is Food Lover Week here in the 25 Days of Christmas (what, you didn’t know it’s Food Lover Week? Well, now you do.), I have a fun, simple recipe for you that’s also delicious and a little fancy. Who doesn’t love simple AND fancy?

I’ve been the designated family cranberry-sauce maker for YEARS. And I have put up a Major Fuss about making it… just about every year since I was maybe 11. But not this year! I know today is Thanksgiving, so you’re probably too late to make it this go-round, but it’s also super delicious as a pseudo-jam or for Christmas dinner as well. Trust me, though, it is so very worth it. 

Here’s what you need: 

  • 12 ounces of fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg

Here’s what I did:

  1. Wash the cranberries.
  2. Bring the orange juice and sugar to a boil.
  3. Add the cranberries and return to a boil. Stir occasionally until most of the berries have popped.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool. Refrigerate until it’s time for dinner. DEVOUR.
