Cranberry Sauce

CC BY by imranali

Basically the difference between cranberry sauce and cranberry relish is the orange.

24 oz. fresh cranberries (6 cups)

1 cup full bodied red wine or cranberry juice

1 ½ cups sugar

1 cinnamon stick

¼ teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon grated orange zest

Wash cranberries and drain. Remove any bad berries.


In a large nonreactive skillet, simmer wine or juice, sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt, and cinnamon stick until sugar is dissolved. Cook 1 more minute.


Add cranberries.


Cook stirring constantly until berries start to pop – about 3 or 4 minutes.


Add orange zest and cook a few seconds.




Remove cinnamon stick.


For thicker relish, smash berries slightly with the back of the spoon.


Makes 16 – 20 ¼ cup servings.


Can be made up to a week in advance and stored tightly covered in the refrigerator.
