For the last several years, I've made a cranberry jello salad for Thanksgiving. This year, though, I wanted to experiment a little and do something different. So of course I went to Pinterest for inspiration! I decided on this Ginger Orange Cranberry Sauce, and I'm so excited for my family to try it! Donny and I both sampled it, and it's DELICIOUS!
Adapted from Oh My Veggies
12 oz cranberries, frozen or fresh
3/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. ginger ale
3/8 c. orange juice
Zest of one orange (approx 1.5 tbsp)
1. Zest your orange.
2. Place all ingredients in a large saucepan and heat until boiling over medium-high heat.
The cranberries will begin to pop open!
3. Once it starts to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for ten minutes, stirring frequently and squishing cranberries against the side of the saucepan with your spatula/wooden spoon.
This recipe can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for several days before eating!
