"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Orange Spiced Cranberry Sauce

THIS is a fabulous cranberry sauce recipe that I make every year. If you haven't made cranberry sauce before, I highly recommend you try it. It is very easy to make, and you will never eat the canned kind again! This is an especially good recipe that I make every Thanksgiving. My daugher LOVES to help with it.


2 lbs. cranberries
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 cups orange juice (I fresh squeeze mine)
2 T. orange zest
3 cinnamon sticks
1-1/2 cups water

Place all ingredients in a large pan.

 Bring mixture to boil over medium heat, then immediately turn heat down.  Simmer for 2-3 hours, til sauce has thickened.  This will not gel up, as it is more of a runnier sauce than other cranberry sauces, but it will thicken more when it cools.  I make this a couple of days ahead of time, because the flavor gets even better after it has set in the fridge a day or two.

Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!
