Total time: 
Citrus and holiday spice flavors come together with the tartness of cranberry to provide a wonderful compliment to any holiday meal. Better yet on a leftover turkey and stuffing sandwich!
  • 1 package of Ocean Spray cranberries
  • 1 - 1½ cups of orange juice plus juice of two oranges
  • Juice of two lemons
  • 1½ cups brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger (or grated)
  • ⅓ cup of julienned orange peel
  • ¼ cup of julienned lemon peel
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • water as needed (probably not)
  1. Place all ingredients in a sauce pan adding water if there is not enough liquid. Berries should just float. Too much water will result in a thin sauce.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer
  3. Simmer until berries pop
  4. continue to simmer allowing the sauce to jelly
  5. refrigerate overnight
