Simple Cranberryorange Sauce
Active: 20 min. Total: 2 hr. 30 min.
This lower-sugar cranberry sauce is fruity and tart, the perfect complement to the richness of turkey, stuffing, and gravy. A comparable amount of canned whole-berry sauce contains 60% more sugar and lacks the fresh flavor of ours.
3 cups fresh or frozen whole cranberries (12 oz.)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. agave nectar
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. orange zest plus 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
(from 1 navel orange), divided
1. Combine cranberries, sugar, agave, salt, and orange juice in a medium saucepan over medium-high, and cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries burst and liquid starts to reduce, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until liquid has a thick, syrupy consistency, about 1) more minutes. Remove from heat, and cool completely, about ) hours. (Sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.) Sprinkle with orange zest.
