Cranberry Sauce (revisited)


This is another one that can be made ahead of time to reduce stress on Thanksgiving day. An even better way to reduce stress is to ask your husband to do it! Thanks babe! :)

We used the same recipe as we did last year, except we made a bigger batch. Too big in fact (we bought the Costco size bag of cranberries). Anyone want some frozen cranberry sauce or have any ideas of what we should do with all the leftovers? If you do, PLEASE let us know!

Ingredients:
- Cranberries
- Orange juice

- Sugar

- Lemon zest
- Ginger


Directions:

- Rinse the cranberries and then pour them into a large pot.

- Add enough orange juice to cover barely cover the cranberries (they won't look covered because cranberries float)

- Bring the mixture to a boil and then lower the heat to maintain a simmer.

- Add LOTS of sugar to taste.

- Add some lemon zest and grated ginger to taste.
- Simmer until all the cranberries of popped and the sauce has thickened.

- Let the sauce cool and then place it in the fridge to set.
