Equipment

  • 3 Qt sauce pan
  • Wooden spoon

Ingredients
  

  • 2 bags fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/4 c dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 c orange or apple juice
  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • In a 3-quart saucepan over high heat, bring all ingredients to a boil. Lower heat to maintain a simmer until the cranberries are tender. Use the backside of a wooden spoon to pop stubborn cranberries. Serve warm or cold.
    This cranberry sauce is, of course, the perfect accompaniment to the traditional American Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey dinner. But it's equally as delicious on ice cream, as the jam in a PB&J sandwich, on sourdough toast with cream cheese, in apple pie filling, and on a spoon.
    NOTE: if you like your cranberry sauce a little sweeter, use a bit more sugar. Feel free to add more mandarin oranges or cinnamon to suite your tastes. If you don't have apple or orange juice, use the mandarin orange juice from the can. If you don't have both kinds of sugar, just use what you have. This recipe is NOT fastidious.

This recipe comes to us courtesy of Chef Mike Garaghty from Wusthof. During our Annual Knife Event last weekend, he carved a turkey (and made it look effortless) and made roast turkey sliders. The accompanying sauce was the recipe you’ll find below. It’s super simple but well received.

Did you attend the Knife Event? Did you get to sample a turkey slider? Did you try the sauce? Tell us below!
