It's almost Thanksgiving. I love to make cranberry sauce and I also add a twist. I add some almond extract and the cranberry sauce starts to take on a cherry taste. It's delicious. I also add some orange juice, zest and some pineapple. Give it a try this week.
Tune in on Tuesday, 11/24 at noon to see this cranberry sauce in action. I'll be on Bloom TV - WFLA making this recipe, just in time for Thanksgiving.
Orange Pineapple Cranberry Sauce
1 cup diced pineapple
1 teaspoon orange zest
3/4 cup orange juice
3 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon Candied Ginger Cinnamon Spice
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Add all ingredients to a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes. Continue to stir every few minutes. Then cool and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This can be made several days ahead of Thanksgiving.
Candied Ginger Cinnamon Spice (candied ginger, demerara sugar, pure maple sugar and cinnamon)
