Adding tartness and sweet elements to a regular turkey or ham sandwich can be life changing. Cranberry sauce is a staple at many Thanksgiving tables, but really, it's something we should have in our fridge all year round.

Ingredients:

  • 1 12 pounds cranberries (2 twelve ounce bags)
  • 1 12 cups white sugar
  • 12 cup red wine
  • 2 14 cups water
  • 12 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 2 or 3 one+ inch pieces of orange peel or larger (you want these fairly large so you can remove later)

Directions:

Place a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Add all ingredients into the saucepan.

Bring sauce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the sauce thickens. 

When the sauce seems syrup-like, remove from heat and fish out and remove the pieces of orange peel. 

Serve warm or store in a jar or lidded container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. 

Notes:

Cranberry sauce also freezes well. This makes a lot of sauce, so if you don't think you will end up using it all, you can add it to freezer bag and store for up to 6 months.
