Your new Favorite Cranberry Sauce & Leftover Cranberry Sauce Muffins!
About 10 years ago, we made the switch from cranberry sauce in the can to homemade cranberry sauce with actual cranberries and we'll never go back! However, what to do with that delicious, tart, orangey goodness that is inevitably leftover?
Tadah! Leftover Cranberry Sauce Muffins!
First the Cranberry Sauce - truly, once you make this, you'll never ever want to to back to the can!
Best and Easiest Homemade Cranberry Sauce
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 (12 oz) bag fresh or frozen cranberries
Zest of one orange
In a medium sauce pan over high heat, bring the orange juice, water, sugar and honey to a boil. Add the cranberries, orange zest, and salt and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium, add cinnamon stick and boil gently until most of cranberries have burst open, about 15 minutes
Transfer sauce to a serving bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
