I'm cooking my first Thanksgiving dinner this year, making my first turkey. Even though I have never roasted at turkey before, I do sometimes make cranberry sauce for the traditional Danish Christmas dinner. This is my favorite recipe:
Makes about 2 cups.
1 orange, zest and juice
200 ml water
125 g sugar
340-350 g fresh or frozen cranberries
Heat orange juice, orange zest, sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved.
Stir in cranberries and bring it to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer until sauce has slightly thickened, about 5-10 minutes, and most of the berries have bust.
Let cool completely before serving.
