I have always made my own cranberry sauce and this one is another version. The ginger, orange and maple syrup brings it up another level. It is easy and everyone will enjoy it. Serve with turkey or ham. Yummy.
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- 12 oz. fresh cranberries, rinsed
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tbsp. grated orange rind
- 4 tbsp. crystalized ginger, diced
- 1/2 cup diced pecans
- 2 tbsp. Grand Marnier liqueur
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar with the water and orange juice. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add the berries and cook until they start to pop open. Now stir in the maple syrup, orange rind and ginger. Simmer for a further 5 minutes. Add the pecans, stir in and remove from heat. Stir in the Grand Marnier.
Cool until warm, ladle in sterilzed jars, cap and now cool completely.
Store until ready to serve. The sauce will thicken on its own while chilling.
You will never buy another can of cranberry sauce again. Promise…..
