Zesty Cranberry Sauce

Add a little spice and orange to whole berries for a tangy twist on the traditional turkey dinner side dish.


1 bag (12 oz) cranberries, cleaned
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice (high pulp is best)
1 packet True Orange
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon allspice


Note: Cranberry color will range from deep red to very light reddish-pink.
  1. Rinse the cranberries then pick through to remove any "squishy" berries
  2. Stir all the ingredients together in a 2 quart sauce pan
  3. Bring to a boil.
  4. Continue to boil until the berries pop open (about 5 minutes), stirring once or twice during cooking.
  5. Pour into a 1 quart serving dish.
  6. Cool thoroughly then chill overnight. The sauce will naturally gel as it cools.
