Sweet, tart and crunchy this homemade Cranberry Sauce is a staple on our holiday table!
Servings 8 servings
- 3 cups whole cranberries
- 1 red apple grated with a box grater - no need to remove the peel
- 1 orange zested and juiced
- ⅓ cup apricots chopped
- ½ cup brown sugar packed
- ¼ cup sugar
- ⅔ cup water
- pinch salt
In a large sauce pan add all of the ingredients; cranberries, grated apple, orange - zest & juice, the apricots, brown & white sugar, water and a pinch of salt. Turn heat to medium and stir to combine. Cook until the cranberries burst - the mixture will thicken dramatically - and stir often as all of the sugars can scorch if they get hot.
Continue to cook and stir - 15-18 minutes and remove from heat. Allow to cool and refrigerate preferably overnight. Serve chilled
