Cranberry Orange Sauce - the best

Pat Duran


This is a quick and easy recipe. I usualy make the traditional cranberry relish with the navel oranges peel and all ground up. But this year I will be eating this..I had a little left over from the quart jar so I had it with the pork chops I had for dinner today..very nice accompaniment.

How to Make Cranberry Orange Sauce - the best


  1. Combine water and both sugars in a small saucepan. Stir and bring to a boil.
    Add the cranberries and bring back to a boil, stirring every once in awhile.
  2. When the second boil begins turn down heat and simmer for 8 minutes..until berries begin to pop...Smash most of the berries with masher or fork. Remove from heat.
  3. Add drained mandarian orange slices and gently stir into berry mixture. Pour into your serving dish, cover and chill until needed.
    To save room in my fridge I poured mine into a quart mason jar.
