Total Time15 mins
- 12 oz fresh cranberries 1 package
- Zest of 1 orange omit for jelly version
- Juice of 1 orange
- Water to make 1/2 cup of liquid
- 1/2 cup orange blossom honey or regular
Wash cranberries and the orange. Discard any mushy cranberries. Zest then juice the orange.
Add water to the orange juice to make 1/2 cup of liquid, add this to a pot with the honey. Bring to a boil on medium heat.
Add the cranberries and orange zest (omit for jelly version), cook for 5 - 10 minutes until the cranberries pop, stirring occasionally.
Some of the berries may not pop, but once the sauce thickens and the berries are tender, it is done.
If you want cranberry sauce with whole berries, you are done at this point. Let cool before serving or refrigerating. Store in jars.
If you want cranberry jelly, transfer the mixture into your food processor or blender. Blend well and strain through a fine mesh strainer. You’ll have to work the mixture through the strainer with a rubber spatula since it is thick. Store in jars, and let cool before refrigerating.
