Cranberry Relish Sauce
Cuisine: Southern
  • 2 8 oz. bags of cranberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 orange
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 small bay leaf
  1. Put cranberries, sugar, and water in a pot and give it a stir to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Zest the orange rind & then squeeze the juice into the pot.
  3. Add spices.
  4. Bring to a boil then cut the heat to medium and let cook for exactly fifteen minutes.
You can halve the recipe and it will make the amount shown in the picture.
If you do halve it go ahead and use the whole orange, juice & zest.
Optional add ins for flavor could be cloves or cardamom seeds.
If you don't have a cinnamon stick add a quarter teaspoon of ground cinnamon, not more. A little goes a long way.
