Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars
1

"This recipe was graciously shared with me by a Jamaican friend many years ago. It makes a delicious sauce, different from any other cranberry sauce I've ever tasted or made. It does not 'gel,' but you do want to cook it long enough to make a good, thick consistency."

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, orange zest, cinnamon, orange juice, and brown sugar. Add enough water to cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Immediately reduce heat, and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the sauce has thickened. Taste for sweetness, and adjust with additional sugar if necessary. You can not overcook, so continue cooking until you have a good thick consistency. Let mixture cool, then refrigerate in a covered container.

I'm giving this one star, simply because this is much too long to cook any cranberry sauce. Cranberries become bitter if they are cooked after they pop. I'm guessing that's why the recipe calls ...

This sauce has a very "robust" flavor that was too strong for some of our family - but I enjoyed it. My only warning is that you need to hold the cranberries down with your hand(s) or something...

This was my first time making cranberry sauce from scratch. This turned out fabulous! It ended up cooking for about 2 hours, but well worth it. Won't be buying that canned muck again...:)

Delicious and a great alternative to canned cranberry sauce. My family was relieved to not see the can-shaped gelationous blob this year. Be careful how much water you put in it, and I like to o...

I made this for Thanksgiving. Other reviews said it took about 3 hrs to thicken. It did; however, I think it wouldn't have taken so long if I hadn't lowered it so low. The recipe said "simmer...

I've made this for thanksgiving several years in a row. It is delicious, but also super sweet and tangy. If I make it again this year, I'll probably scale back on the sugar. UPDATE: I made the ...
