Cranberry Orange Sauce recipe with cranberries, orange, and orange juice from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I've loved Cranberry Orange Sauce for as long as I can remember. 

It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving or Christmas with out a large bowl of zesty Orange Cranberry Sauce. When I was a wee little one my Dad tells a story of one Thanksgiving I climbedup on the table and polished off the entire dish of cranberry sauce before anyone realized what was going on.

Oops!Thank goodness I was so cute or they might have been mad at me.

Colt and I had made a large container of Cranberry Orange Sauce recipe for Thanksgiving, but it was gone before we could ever capture a picture so we made another batch of the ruby colored deliciousness  to go with a Rosemary Sage Pork Loin Roast we had been keeping in the freezer for the last few weeks.

It was so delicious! 
Rosemary Sage Pork Loin Roast with a zesty Cranberry Orange Sauce recipe is a great way to use up leftover Cranberry Sauce.

I think a Rosemary Sage Pork Loin Roast with a zesty Cranberry Orange Sauce is a gorgeous and delicious choice for any holiday family gatherings and is so easy to make. 

It's also a great use for leftover Cranberry Sauce.

I can't wait to share the recipe tomorrow.

In a saucepan combine cranberries, orance zest, orange juice, water and sugar to make a Zesty Cranberry Orange Sauce Recipe.

Combine in a large sauce pan:
  • 6 cups Washed Cranberries
  • 1 whole Orange Zested, Chopped Fine
  • 3/4 cup Orange Juice
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 3/4  Sugar Or To Taste
 Stir until well combined.

Tip: I find the darker ruby red cranberries have a tendency to be a little sweeter with better flavor when choosing bags of cranberries. I also avoid bags with wrinkled cranberries and discard any I find when I wash the berries, since the wrinkly berries have a tendency to be soft and starting to go bad. I also look for dark orange, oranges with skin that smells fragrant when purchasing and prefer organic produce when available to avoid any extra preservatives on the orange zest.

Sadly all the Cranberry Orange Sauce was eaten during the making of this post and no longer exists in my fridge.

We may or may not have a serious Cranberry addiction in our house. I refuse to answer on grounds I'm not ready to give up my little ruby red gems.

  2. Not sure if you chop the orange fine or just the zest. Do you add the orange to the sauce or not ?
