SPICY ROASTED CRANBERRY SAUCE

SPICY ROASTED CRANBERRY SAUCE


 

Before I started cooking Thanksgiving dinner, I truly believed the only form of Cranberry sauce was from a can. I was always confused why people ate canned Cranberry sauce because I thought it was nasty! It used to feel as though I was putting tasteless jello on my food.

Fresh Cranberry sauce is so easy to make. You grab all of the ingredients, toss them into a baking dish and put it in the oven. The oven does all the work. 

The spice level is mild. If you want to kick it up a notch and make it spicy add an extra 1/2 tablespoon of crushed red pepper flakes.

2 12-oz. bags of fresh cranberries
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
