Crockpot Cranberry Sauce

Crockpot Cranberry Sauce

I am a huge fan of cranberries. I love cranberry sauce, cranberry jelly, cranberry relish and cranberries hung on the Christmas tree! This is the season fresh cranberries are found for reasonable prices in the grocery store and I’ve been playing with several cranberry sauce recipes. Here’s my favorite combination so far:

–12 oz cranberries
–1 cup orange juice
–1 1/2 cups brown sugar
–1 cup white sugar
–1/2 tsp cinnamon
–1/8 tsp nutmeg
–1/4 tsp orange zest
–1/4 tsp lemon zest

Rinse the cranberries, picking out any duds and extra stem pieces that may have been in the bag. Combine all the ingredients in a crockpot. Set the heat to high. This should cook covered around 3 hours, stirring each hour. Pop the cranberries against the side of the crockpot bowl with a large spoon when they are nice and soft.

I’ve found this is a very forgiving recipe. The first time I made it I had the recipe on high for 2 hours stirring every hour and then let it cook uncovered a while. I only meant to cook it another hour but ended up letting it cook another three hours. It was a thicker sauce but still tasted good. It also smells great while cooking!

The original recipe came from: here!
