Why I Love This Recipe

This is a grerat turkey condiment but is also fabulous served warm over ice cream or waffles

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup Orange Juice
1 cup sugar
1 bag cranberries
zest, juice and pulp of 1 orange
1 apple


Add your orange juice and sugar to a sauce pan. Heat over medium high heat and stir until sugar dissolves.

Pour your cranberries into a colander. Rinse and pick out any smooshed or ugly berries. Add berries to the pan and stir to coat in OJ

While berries are cooking, zest the orange. Cut orange in half squeeze halves by stabbing center with a fork and pressing orange halves around it. Scrape out some of the pulp as well. Add zest, juice and pulp to pan.

While berries continue to simmer, peel, core and chop apple into small pieces. Once most of the berries have burst, add apple pieces to pan and stir.

Cook for 5 more minutes then remove from heat.

Serve warm over waffles or ice cream. If using for a turkey condiment, allow to stand for about 15 minutes, then pour mixture into a glass bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
