Tangerine-Cranberry Sauce


This is my version of a cranberry relish that my mom made when I was a kid. If you can, make it 1 or 2 days in advance, as the flavors need to mellow a little bit in the fridge.

  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh or frozen cranberries

  • ¾ cup confectioners' sugar, or more to taste

  • 1 tangerine, juiced

  • 1 tangerine, zested and juiced

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Stir cranberries, confectioners' sugar, tangerine juice, tangerine zest, and cinnamon together in a non-stick saucepan over medium heat; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the cranberries pop and the mixture thickens, 15 to 20 minutes. Crush any remaining whole cranberries against the sides of the saucepan with a spatula to burst.
