  • This festive sauce is as easy as it is beautiful. With orange and zest added and half the amount of sugar added, this is a light and flavorful rendition of the traditional favorite. It's SO GOOD with turkey but also yummy on sandwiches and with appetizers (on baked brie, with cream cheese and crackers, etc.)

    Makes about 20 servings (2 tablespoons each)


    • 1/2 cup sweetener of choice: honey, maple syrup or granulated sugar

      2 large oranges (includes 1 tablespoon orange zest and segments from 2 oranges)

      1 12-ounce bag of fresh or frozen cranberries (about 3 cups)


      1. Remove the zest from one orange (about 1 tablespoon), finely chop it, and add to a medium, nonstick saucepan. Remove the peel from this orange and the remaining orange and place orange segments in saucepan with zest; use potato masher or similar to mash segments.
      2. Place remaining ingredients in saucepan and stir well (add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of orange juice or water if needed or if small oranges are used); bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
      3. Reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries pop open and sauce is nicely thickened (about 10-15 minutes).
      4. Cool about 30 minutes then store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
