Cranberry Sauce Recipe
It is a versatile cranberry sauce recipe and very forgiving too. You can replace the orange juice with lemon juice or even water. For a more festive feel, you can Port to it. If you like a sweeter cranberry sauce, you can more sugar or a little bit of honey too. Lemon zest works well too if you don’t have orange zest on hand. Make it your own by adding things you love! Remember to let the cranberry sauce sit a while so that the flavors blend and it hits the right notes of sweet and tart.
