RECIPE: CHUNKY CRANBERRY SAUCE

 

Cranberries:

Cranberries are a good source of magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin E, and Copper; cranberry juice — known ability to prevent or treat Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs).

 

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 orange, zested
1 orange, peeled, cut into small pieces
1/2 lemon, zested
1 cup pineapple juice
4 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup maple syrup

 

DIRECTIONS:
Prep Time: 10 minutes; Cook Time: 20 minutes

Add cranberries and maple syrup to a pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium and simmer with a lid until skin pops on the cranberries and they begin to mush together – approximately 15-20 minutes.  Heat popped cranberries, along with orange & lemon zest. Remove from heat.

Add remaining ingredients to the sauce – adding the fresh pineapple juice slowly so sauce isn’t too runny.

Mix together and serve immediately or refrigerate. The sauce can be warm or cold when served. Freeze remaining sauce if necessary.

Assembly:
Slice the turkey into rounds and pour cranberry sauce over top. Optional – add some more orange and lemon zest for garnish.

Note: The cranberry sauce can be prepared 1-2 days in advance and the recipe makes enough to cover 6 thickly sliced turkey.
