Thanksgiving and cranberries go hand in hand. Today I thought I would share two of my favorite cranberry recipes with you.
The first is Cranberry Slush, a drink that is a Thanksgiving staple in my family. Click here to read about it and see the recipe. The slush needs to be frozen, so don’t forget to make it a day or two before! Also…go for the quick version. That’s what we ALWAYS make. Sorry I don’t have a picture of the finished product…every year we drink it all up before I remember to snap a shot!
Now, we like canned cranberry sauce as much as the next family, but I really do need to share this next sauce/relish recipe with you, in case you’re looking for something different. It’s easy to make…but everyone will be impressed when you come out with homemade cranberry sauce. Trust me, I know from experience.
CRANBERRY ORANGE SAUCE
A recipe I found online somewhere, easy to make and very very yummy alternative to normal cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving
– 1/2 lb cranberries
– 1/2 C sugar
– 1/4 C orange juice
– zest of 1 orange
– 4 oranges separated, pith and membranes removed
Bring 1/2 C water to simmer. Add cranberries, sugar, OJ and zest. Simmer & stir until sugar dissolved and berries begin to pop, ~15 mins. Remove from heat – add orange segments
