Fresh Orange Cranberry Sauce



This is the cranberry sauce I make every year for Thanksgiving. It's so easy and only has three ingredients and no cooking. I usually make it a day or so ahead so I don't have to worry about it on the big day.





I use my food processor and it chops it up in 10 to 20 seconds or so.  It makes almost 3 cups but if you need more just double the recipe. Easy peasey.




Ingredients:
One 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries (I use Ocean Spray)
1 navel orange (try to get an orange that has smooth thin skin)
3/4 cup granulated sugar

Directions:
Wash and drain the fresh cranberries. Wash the orange and cut off the ends. Quarter the orange leaving the skin on and take out those little white pieces in the center.

Add the cranberries and orange quarters to the food processor and pulse for 10 second intervals until desired chop is achieved. Pour into bowl and add sugar. If you like it a little sweeter just add a little sugar at a time. Done. See how easy that was and you can say "I made this, no canned cranberry sauce for us".

Tip: Also great with some over cream cheese to use as an appetizer.
