I’ve heard this referred to as Orange Cranberry Sauce as well as Cranberry Sauce with Oranges. 

Both refer to this recipe and I hope it is to your liking!

When it comes to Thanksgiving one of the most forgotten dishes is the cranberry sauce.

The easy thing to do is to open a can of jellied cranberry sauce and place it on the table.

Believe it or not, hat jiggly mass will most likely be untouched by the end of dinner.

Instead of treating cranberry sauce as a forgotten dish, take a little time and prepare this Orange Cranberry Sauce this year.

It’s amazing how easy and quick it comes together and your fear of the jiggly stuff will disappear.

I’ve been pretty hooked on my Raspberry Cranberry Sauce, so this was a big deal to try something new.

Last year I decided to branch out and try another version.

Fresh Orange Cranberry Sauce.

The idea initially came from my love of Orange Cranberry Bread.

The flavor combination of oranges and cranberries is mouthwatering.

What will surprise you most about this cranberry sauce is the warmth the cinnamon provides.

It’s warm aroma and flavor will be the first thing you taste when try this Cranberry Orange Sauce. 

This Cranberry sauce with orange juice and cinnamon are two key ingredients to make it taste great!

And it will quickly become a flavor and experience you’ll want to try again.

I was talking to a friend a few years ago and they were legitimately confused on the purpose of cranberry sauce.

Throughout their childhood they could recall a can of jellied cranberry sauce on the table, but could not recall what the purpose of it was.

Was it a side dish that you eat as is?

Is it supposed to be treated as a Jam or Jelly on your dinner roll?

My friend was genuinely confused at the purpose of cranberry sauce.

I laughed and said, it’s on the table so you can make something with it after!

She laughed and then we talked about all the yummy treats I like to make with it once Thanksgiving is over.

Breakfast items, Desserts and even a Pot Roast!

In all seriousness, Cranberry Sauce should be treated as a condiment.

It is something that compliments the flavors of other dishes.

Yes you can use it as a jelly on your dinner roll.

And yes you can eat it as it is – I promise you wont die.

However many people like to add it on their turkey and I’ve even seen a person or two add it to their mashed potatoes.

Though, that one isn’t as common.

Cranberry Sauce is a wonderful dish that can enhance the flavors of other items on the table.

This Orange Cranberry Sauce with it’s warm cinnamon has become a new favorite of ours!

I’ve already made it twice this year of which we’ve enjoyed on sandwiches, with a variety of meat and in lots of baked goods!

Growing up cranberry sauce was the forgotten item on the table.

It was there just because of tradition or obligation.

However you are no longer a kid.
