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.
