Started working on my Thanksgiving job out at the Ranch today. I feel like I am behind because Thanksgiving falls so early this year and because some of the guests are showing up earlier than usual. All the behind the scenes prep work happens now...the work that makes Thanksgiving week run smoothly. Pie crusts get made and frozen, the homemade meat sauce for Saturday evening Lasagna simmers for hours and I make the Orange Cranberry Sauce. Well, that was really all I got done today because I also did two and a half hours worth of shopping, the first trip of many spent filling multiple carts at our local grocery. I really encourage you to try this Cranberry Sauce. Not only is it incredibly easy, but it keeps forever-really months-and takes no time at all. I could eat it by the spoonful (and I do!).
Ingredients: 2 cups sugar, 2 cups water, 1 large navel orange (organic, please), 2-1# bags of fresh cranberries and a few grinds of nutmeg.
Here's the recipe:
