Our BEST Thanksgiving Side Dishes: Orange Maple Cranberry Sauce


Description

Here are our favorite Thanksgiving side dishes- appetizers, salads, sides, desserts and drinks- PLUS the recipe for the BEST Cranberry Sauce, sweetened with Maple Syrup!


Ingredients

  • 4 cups cranberries,  washed
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 orange, zested, then peeled and cut very small avoiding big parts of the membrane
  • 1 small apple, diced
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. In a pot, cook cranberries, maple syrup and a pinch of salt over medium heat, until lightly simmering and cranberries begin to pop, about 8 minutes.  It is okay if cranberries are in different stages of breaking down.  Some will be popped, some will still be whole.
  2. Remove cranberries from heat.  Add diced apples, orange zest and chopped orange.  Mix to combine.  It will thicken as it cools.
  3. Refrigerate until serving.  This will keep 3 days in the fridge.

Notes

This will keep 3 days in the fridge.
