Cranberry sauce is one of the more divisive holiday dishes. It brings a bright explosion of sweet-tart flavor the a table laden with rich mashed potatoes, savory stuffing, and roasted bird. Our sauce uses orange juice and zest to amplify those bright cranberry flavors, and brown sugar to add some dark, molasses sweetness to balance the tartness. This dish is great room temp or cold. Since it only takes up one cooking slot be sure to check out our other Thanksgiving recipes and cook it alongside some Creamed Spinach, Turkey Casserole, or Stuffing.
