Here is a simple cranberry sauce that is quick and simple just in the nick of time for Thanksgiving dinner. Southeast Florida is very well known for its abundance of citrus groves. This cranberry sauce has a unique citrus zest. Just simmer fresh cranberries, sugar, orange zest, and a cinnamon stick together until slightly thickened.
- Two 8-ounce packages of cranberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 orange, zest cut into strips, and juiced
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
Put all the ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat and simmer until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve at room temperature or cool and refrigerate. Remove the cinnamon stick before serving.
