Now for this week's contribution.

Since it's Thanksgiving tomorrow, I'm getting my cranberry sauce ready to bring to a friend's house. Cranberry sauce is often overlooked, but with this recipe, your turkey may have some competition!
Orange Cranberry Sauce
(makes three cups) 

  • 1 1/2 cups orange marmalade
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries 
  • 1/4 cup sugar (if you like it sweeter than tart) 
  1. Mix marmalade, juice and cinnamon stick in a saucepan, bring to boil.
  2. Add cranberries, return to boil.
  3. Simmer and cook until cranberries pop and thicken, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Add sugar (if you're going the sweet route) and remove from heat, cool.
Enjoy! Can't wait to see what you're all cooking up this week. Please spread the word to your friends so we all can get some yummy new recipes (and followers).
