Holiday Favorites: Cranberry Sauce

This cranberry sauce is really quick and simple to make. With cranberries in season, it's inexpensive as well. It makes a great addition to any sort of pork. It also cans well if you want to save some for another time or give some as a gift. I run mine through the food processor for a smoother texture.

Did I mention it's way better than that canned stuff?

Cranberry Sauce
12 oz bag fresh cranberries
1 small can mandarin oranges
1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp fresh orange zest (optional)
If you want to grind your sauce, go ahead and do that first. It'll save you a little mess and some work cutting. Pour all ingredients into a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer covered for 20 minutes. May serve warm or cold. Adjust sweetness if needed.
