This simple Turkey Day side beats the heck out of its canned cousin. Make an extra batch to go with the leftovers.

Makes: 8 servings

Prep: 5 mins

Cook: 10 mins

  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup sugar, plus more if desired
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 12 ounce bag  fresh cranberries, rinsed
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat 1/2 cup water with the orange zest, orange juice, sugar and salt over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the cranberries and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 7 minutes. Sweeten with more sugar, if desired. Let the sauce cool to room temperature before serving.
