I think this is the easiest recipe I’ll ever post. Mr. Texanerin made this for Thanksgiving last year (his first Thanksgiving ever!) and it was kind of the star of the day. Before he made this for my family, they always got the canned stuff and every year people would take a pity spoonful. I don’t even know why we had it.
So first you need to get yourself some cranberries.
Mix them with honey, orange juice and orange zest.
Later this week: a pie recipe which requires cranberry sauce! Sounds kind of disgusting, but I promise it’s delicious. :)
1 cup (240ml) orange juice
1/2 cup (160 grams) honey*
Zest of 4 oranges
1 12-ounce package (340 grams) of cranberries
Over medium heat, dissolve the honey in the orange juice. Zest the oranges directly into the mixture. Add the cranberries and cook until most of them have popped. It takes about 10 – 15 minutes. You don’t even have to stir them. It’ll get thicker when it has cooled.
* You can also make this with white sugar, but then use 3/4 cup.
