Easy Orange Cranberry Sauce
There are three sugar options in this recipe. You can make it with 2 cups of sugar, you can use less sugar (1 1/2 cups), or you can use 1-cup regular sugar and 1 cup Splenda® (sugar substitute).
- 2 cups sugar (Splenda® can be substituted for 1 cup of this sugar)
- 2 cups orange juice
- 2 packages (12 ounces each) fresh cranberries
- Zest from 2 oranges
1. Add all the ingredients to a large, nonstick saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook until cranberries pop open, stirring often (about 10 minutes).
2. Fill gift jars or serving dishes with the orange cranberry mixture, cover well, then keep chilled in refrigerator until serving or giving it to your friends and family.
