I love this recipe for Cranberry Sauce - just made it today
I should be heading off to bed...but here you go!
12 oz. fresh cranberries (usually one bag)
1/4-1/3 cup real maple syrup
grated rind, and juice of one orange
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamon
Wash and drain the cranberries. Remove any soft or discolored berries, and any leaves or stems.
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan, and cook on medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring, until the cranberries have popped and the sauce is thick.
Serve hot or cold.
This is just the best - turned me into someone who likes cranberry sauce, previously, I didn't.
I thought about making cranberry sauce but then decided to heck with it. Since I'm just cooking for me it wasn't worth the trouble so I bought a can of cranberry sauce. Well now I look at your recipe and it sounds so good I'm going to have to go to the store again and get the ingredients! Darn you Pat!
Well I just got back from the store and I can say that between the cost of the cardamom and the maple syrup, this will without a doubt be the the most expensive cranberry sauce I've ever had!
It's really, really good sauce though...hope you will think so too!!
Well........I made it, it made the house smell really good - that plus the Apple Brown Betty I made for some friends. The maple syrup wasn't sweet enough to offset the sourness of the cranberries though IMO. Talk about pucker lol. I had to add some sugar. Other than that it has a good flavor.
Cardamom is WOOOOOOOOOOOOOnnnnnderful! Also, it's in the ginger family, and goes well in any place where you might use ginger, but would like the flavour a little more subtle.
