Orange Cranberry Sauce Recipe

Here's a Convincing Reason Why You Should Make Your Own Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is a quintessential part of a Thanksgiving feast, so don't treat it like a congealed, canned afterthought. Homemade cranberry sauce is so easy to make — not to mention healthier than its store-bought jellied counterpart. Our orange cranberry sauce marries classic Fall flavors; for a slightly different variation, try this cranberry pomegranate sauce recipe.
