I am running behind, way behind on my Thanksgiving dinner preparations. Painting, cleaning, sorting. I need a vacation, urgently! Do you feel the same?
Nevertheless, still time to make some homemade cranberry sauce. Don’t give in; no store bought jelly-like stuff, alright! This is my favorite recipe. It enhances the flavors of the cranberries with cinnamon, oranges and Cointreau. It will go perfectly with your Thanksgiving turkey.
* 3 cups fresh cranberries
* zest of two oranges
* juice of two oranges
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 Tablespoon Cointreau
* 2 cinnamon sticks
Mix all the ingredients in a medium sized pot. Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes. Let cool and discard the cinnamon sticks before serving.
