Cranberry Orange Sauce

This is really more of a baseline than a fixed recipe. I adjust the sugar and the orange juice depending on what I will use the cranberry sauce for. The obvious is to put on turkey at Thanksgiving, but it makes a bowl of oatmeal so seasonally delicious. Mix into plain Greek yogurt with granola for breakfast or dessert, top pancakes or waffles. Mix into cream cheese and make pancake (waffle or muffin) “sammies” (sanwiches) for breakfast on the go or an afternoon snack.

Use it on crostini or crackers for an appetizer: spread soft goat cheese (or cream cheese), top with cranberry orange sauce and chopped chives or green onion.

Rather than orange zest, I sometimes use lemon or lime zest. And add minced fresh ginger.
