I'm sure your home, like most homes across America, is still stuffed to the gills with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. You've probably had turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, turkey cookies...ok, nix the last one. Well, if you're looking for a fast side to go with all that leftover turkey try making up some of This Week For Dinner's Cranberry Orange Sauce. It's simple to make and only takes one pot (easy clean-up!)...plus it's fun to watch the cranberries explode when they get heated up.
Cranberry Orange Sauce
1/2 lb cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
zest of 1 orange
4 oranges separated, pith and membranes removed* (I only used 2 oranges and felt that was more than enough)
- Bring 1/2 C water to simmer.
- Add cranberries, sugar, OJ and zest. Simmer & stir until sugar dissolved and berries begin to pop, ~15 mins.
- Remove from heat – add orange segments.
