Homemade Cranberry Sauce:
12 ounces (340g) fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup (200g) brown sugar
1/2 cup (120ml) orange juice
1/2 cup (120ml) water
Optional: Orange zest, cinnamon, cloves, or other spices for flavor variation
Prepare the Cranberries:
Rinse the cranberries thoroughly under cold water, removing any stems or bruised berries.
Cooking the Cranberries:
In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, water and orange juice.
If desired, add a dash of orange zest, or spices (like cinnamon or cloves) to enhance the flavor. Stir to combine.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
Once it reaches a simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
Cool and Serve:
Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the cranberry sauce to cool to room temperature. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
Transfer the cranberry sauce to a serving dish or an airtight container. Refrigerate until chilled before serving.
