Roast turkey always go well with cranberry sauce. They make a good pair during thanksgiving dinner. Are you thinking of making your own cranberry sauce from scratch? We have an easy recipe that you might be interested in.
The simplest cranberry sauce recipe is composed of fresh cranberries, water, and sugar. We modified the recipe a bit by adding orange juice. I started out by boiling water and orange juice in a sauce pan. The sugar is then added and stirred until it completely dissolves. The last step is to add the cranberries and simmer until it bursts, which usually takes up to 12 minutes or so.
Aside from being the perfect sauce for roast turkey, cranberry sauce also makes roast and baked chicken more interesting.
