Small Batch Cranberry-Orange Sauce
This is a great small batch recipe for the perfect cranberry-orange sauce.
Servings: 6 servings
- 1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar you can always taste the sauce after it has pureed. If you need to add more sugar, you can add it. I generally like my sauce a little more tart.
- 1 tablespoon orange zest
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup water
Add all ingredients to saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once the sugar has dissolved and most of the cranberries split, pour into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth, or fairly smooth, depending on how you like your sauce.Return to saucepan. Cook again over medium heat, this time stirring more frequently. Allow the sauce to cook until it has thickened. Mine didn't take long, about 5 minutes. If you need to add more sugar, check it now. If you do add in more, allow it to cook another 3-5 minutes for the sugar to dissolve. This sauce holds well in the fridge for up to 5 days stored in an airtight container. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
