How to Make It

Step 1

Sort cranberries and discard any soft or spoiled ones. Rinse and drain berries.

Step 2

Mix cranberries, sugar, brandy, and orange peel in an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, in a 325° oven until berries are tender when pierced and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Serve warm or cool.

This acutally is one of our families favorite holiday recipes. It is simple and the flavor is AMAZING! Who would EVER eat canned sause after this is crazy. People are always asking me for the recipe.

I made this the last two years for Thanksgiving, and my family loved it. I'm diabetic so I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and it was still great. It's a very forgiving recipe.
