Cranberry Sauce is a relish made out of cranberries that are primarily served as a condiment with dinner on festivals like Thanksgiving. As the name suggests, it is made out of fresh cranberries along with some orange juice and sugar. The sweetness and sourness can differ in parts of the world where it is cooked. In parts of North America, people prefer their cranberry sauce to be more on the sweeter side whereas, in parts of the UK, people majorly prefer to not lose the tanginess of the cranberries completely. This easy to prepare sauce can be well paired with your chicken and ham dishes. But this cranberry sauce accompanies turkey the best. The sugar levels of the sauce can be adjusted to the preference of your audience. The orange juice is added to cut down on the severe tanginess of cranberries and sugar adds to the sweetness. In some cases, people also add lemon zest to further cut down the tanginess and to increase the freshness that the cranberries carry with them. This cranberry sauce can also be used as a bread spread and can be carried for picnics and packed lunches. So, What are you waiting for?

How to make Cranberry Sauce
To begin, over medium flame in a pan, add orange juice with sugar and start stirring. Once the sugar dissolves, add the washed cranberries to the orange juice and cook for about 10 minutes.
Once the cranberries start to pop, remove the pan from the flame and transfer the sauce to a preheated glass bowl. When the sauce comes down to room temperature, put it inside the refrigerator to chill and enjoy!
