Easy Maple Cranberry Sauce

I tried out this new cranberry sauce recipe this year and it was really good, a nice mix of tart and sweet.

1 orange

12 oz fresh or frozen cranberries

1 cup real maple syrup

1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

Optional Variations

Cinnamon Apple – 2 Granny Smith apples, diced (about 2 cups) and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Jalapeno – 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped

Pomegranate – 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

1  Zest and juice orange to make 1 tablespoon zest and 1/3 cup juice.

2  Put cranberries, zest, juice, maple syrup, and brown sugar plus variation ingredients if using into a small saucepan and stir to combine.

3  Bring to a simmer over medium heat for 10 – 15 minutes or until berries burst and sauce starts to thicken.

4  Remove from heat, cool completely then refrigerate until ready to serve.
