Cranberry Sauce with Orange Zest

Cranberry sauce!

I needed to make enough for an army so here it goes…


24 Oz cranberries
2 cups sugar
2 Tbs orange zest
2 Tbs agave Nectar (orange schnapps or triple sec works, too)
1.5 cups of water
1 tsp table salt

Bring the water to a boil. Add the cranberries and the rest of the ingredients and simmer over medium heat. Let it hang until 2/3 of the berries pop (10-15 minutes).


Take a potato masher and crush half of the mixture. Let it cool and it will thicken nicely.

Cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving = happiness.
