Orange cranberry sauce
This recipe makes enough cranberry sauce to accompany an 18 lb turkey for 20 people, with plenty of leftovers.
2 12 oz packages of fresh cranberries
juice of 2 oranges
zest of 1 orange
1/4 cup water (you may need a bit more depending on how much juice the oranges yield)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 oz orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier or Triple Sec or Cointreau)
Combine all ingredients,except the liqueur, in a saucepan and heat on meadium-high for a few minutes, stirring regularly. Once the cranberries begin burst, reduce the heat to low and add the liqueur. Let simmer until the mixture thickens and the cranberries have softened, about 10 minutes. Let cool and serve at room temperature.
