I ran out of jelly the other day...and went rummaging through my pantry in search of stuff I could put on my toast. Hmmm...what about cranberry sauce???...I mixed it with some ground orange peel I had. Voila--instant bread spread. REALLY yummo.

How To Make cranberry/orange bread spread

  • 1
    Plop cranberry sauce into bowl. Smush with fork until smooth.
  • 2
    Mix in 1 to 2 Tbs dried, ground orange peel. Note* --to make your own ground orange peel....take the peels from mandarin oranges (or "cuties", tangerines). I use these because they don't have much white "pith" on them. Let dry on cookie sheet for 5 - 7 days or so until they are COMPLETELY dried out. Grind in coffee grinder (a food processed just doesn't seem to do it). Store in jar with air-tight lid.
  • 3
    Spread on toast, bagels, English muffins, biscuits, scones...any breakfast bread.

    Stores in covered container in refrigerator for a week or so.
