Orange Amaretto Cranberry Sauce is a delicious twist on the classic cranberry sauce recipe. My husband actually requests cranberry sauce for the Thanksgiving table now! Plus this recipe is so simple and quick there’s no reason to serve the canned stuff again!
24oz Fresh Cranberries
1.5 cups Sugar
2/3 cup Orange Juice
3 TBS Amaretto Liqueur
2 TBS Orange Zest
1/4 cup Water
Rinse cranberries and add to a large saucepan. Add sugar, orange juice, orange zest and water.
Bring to low boil for 3-4 minutes. Lower heat to a simmer.
Add amaretto and continue to simmer for 20 minutes or until thickened.
Cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
