Here's a little Thanksgiving tradition from my family to yours...this cranberry sauce recipe was given to me years ago by my sister. It has been a favorite of ours for every Thanksgiving celebration since.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It seems like the right time, therefore, to get back into the swing of blogging about food and sharing the recipes that allow us to slow down and enjoy the moment. Warmest wishes and Happy Thanksgiving!
|Cranberry Blueberry Sauce|
1 cup of sugar
1 cup water
16 oz frozen cranberries
1 cup frozen blueberries (reserve 1/4 cup and set aside)
orange skin (1-2 strips of about 1/3" x 2")
In a medium sauce pan, bring the sugar and water to a boil. Add the cranberries and simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Then, add 3/4 cups of blueberries and the orange skin. Continue simmering for 15 minutes, stirring every so often. Finally, add the remaining 1/4 cup of blueberries and allow the mixture to cool. It will keep for about 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
