So it was Thanksgiving. I hope you had a good celebration! I don't usually celebrate it but this year I used it as an excuse to eat some turkey and get myself busy in the kitchen. It was worth it! Among other dishes, I made this cranberry sauce. It's a super easy recipe and it tastes so great! I know that that's a very American recipe but I highly recommend other foreigners to try it. It's a great side dish and it works well together with chicken, pork, mashed potatoes and, of course, turkey. This is definitely a recommend!
Ingredients1 1/2 cup cranberry (fresh or frozen)
65g sugar (brown or white)
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup port wine (optional)
- Rinse the cranberries and pour them in a pan. Add in the sugar, orange juice and port wine and bring it to boil over medium-high heat.
- When it starts to boil and get a foamy look, turn the heat down and start to simmer. Simmer it until cranberries burst.
- Remove it from the heat and squeeze some lemon juice on top. Allow it to cool down and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.
- Making this recipe a day in advance will help bringing the most of its flavor.
- You can add more ingredients to this recipe such as pecans, cinnamon, blueberries, orange zest.
- Although it's traditionally served with turkey, it can be served in different ways. Chicken, pork or even with mashed potatoes. It's delicious! There's a restaurant I know which gives you a portion of this sauce with every meal you order.
