Cranberries are cooked with orange rind orange juice, lemon juice and brandy. This is an interesting sauce to serve with roasts on special occasions.
This makes a nice food present at Christmas.
I love cranberries so I thought I would give this a try for Christmas. I added half of the orange zest suggested and it was just enough orange flavour. Also, as most people have said, you will probably need to cook it a little longer. A huge hit with my husband's grandfather, I thought he was going to eat the whole bowl! I will definitely make this again!!!!!! - 29 Sep 2008
I'm not a big fan of cranberry sauce, and when I decided to use this recipe for christmas I had no idea it was going to turn out so yummy. Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. The orange and brandy really brought out the flavour, although I did cut back on the orange zest. Wonderful recipe, and much prettier than the shop bought alternative. - 29 Sep 2008
I try a new cranberry-sauce recipe every holiday, and this one has gotten far and away the best reception. Unlike the other reviewers I *increased* the zest and was pleased with the results. (Expect to cook it down a bit longer than indicated, though.) If you manage to have any left after the meal, you'll find it's also wonderful on vanilla ice cream. - 29 Sep 2008
