Homemade Citrus Cranberry Sauce
Small chunks of orange along with two kinds of citrus zest give bright, fresh flavor to traditional cranberry sauce. You can make this several days ahead if you like — it keeps well in the refrigerator for a week. The recipe is a Yummly original created by David Bonom.

- Finely grate 1 teaspoon orange zest and 1 teaspoon lemon zest and combine in a small bowl. Save remaining lemon for other uses.
- Cut the rind and outer white membrane from the oranges, following the curve of the fruit. Cut between the inner membranes to remove orange segments. Cut each segment into thirds and transfer to the bowl with the citrus zest.
- Combine the cranberries, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook until all cranberries have popped and mixture thickens slightly, 8-10 minutes.
- Stir in the orange segments and citrus zest. Remove from heat and cool cranberry sauce to room temperature.
- Chill sauce at least 3 hours before serving to thicken.

It’s so good, I had to make TWO batches! I make this every single year, because this is always a go to for my family. That canned “cranberry sauce” is dreadful. I don’t know why people continue to eat that and instead they can make this which lasts for a while, especially when using the canning method.

Just made this. Wow, best cranberry sauce I've ever made! I did substitute maple syrup for the sugar and apple juice (MINUS 4 TABLESPOONS) for the water. Also added a cinnamon stick while cooking. Delicious!!!

I'm sure this citrus cranberry sauce in yummy. I make a non-cooked similar version that was handed down to me from my sister-in-law many years ago and it always gets rave reviews. I have substituted Splenda for the sugar and it is just as good only without the extra calories. It is simply cranberries and orange including the zest, chopped plus the sweetener of your choice all stirred up. That is it! It too can be made ahead of time and keeps well in the fridge.
