We first made this Orange Cranberry Dessert Sauce to top slices of pound cake for a Thanksgiving dessert we were testing a few years ago. It was such a hit with our whole team that we often make a batch to top other desserts all year round. A delicious citrus spin on traditional cranberry sauce, it's something everyone will love.
What You'll Need
- 4 cups fresh cranberries
- 1 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
- 2 tablespoons triple sec or other orange-flavored liqueur (optional)
What to Do
- In a saucepan, combine cranberries, orange juice, sugar, and orange peel. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Carefully pour into a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl and stir in liqueur, if desired. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
This sauce dresses up vanilla ice cream beautifully - both in looks and taste!
