Fresh Orange Cranberry Sauce

While I haven't been updating the blog for some time I still have been cooking plenty so I will work to update this blog with about a year+ of reviews and recipes :)  My favorite thing to make on Thanksgiving is fresh cranberry sauce.

This recipe calls for:
-1/2 cup of water
-1/2 cup of sugar
-1 bag of fresh cranberries
-1 can of sliced mandarin oranges
-1 orange juiced and some grated orange peel

Add water and sugar to a sauce pan and cook on medium high heat.  Stir to combine and once sugar is dissolved add all other ingredients except the sliced oranges.  As the cranberries cook they will make an audible popping noise.  When the cranberries stop popping (this should take about 15 minutes) add oranges and cook for an additional five minutes.  Stir to combine as they are cooking.  Take off of heat and let sauce thicken for several minutes before eating.  Add additional sugar to taste as needed.
