Fresh Whole Cranberry Sauce
Why I Love This Recipe
This is the recipe off the back of your average bag of fresh cranberries, with the addition of Cointreau, because I think that the orange nicely complements the cranberries. I'll sometimes add some orange zest to intensify the orange flavor even more.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 cups (12 oz) fresh cranberries
1 tbsp Cointreau
In a medium saucepan combine the sugar and water.
Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil rapidly for 5 minutes.
Return to boiling; reduce heat.
Boil gently, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until skins pop, stirring occasionally.
Add the Cointreau and stir to combine.
Remove from heat.
Serve warm or chilled as desired.
