I know you all are probably with your families and friends eating delicious turkey and watching parades, but I've got a recipe I wanted to share with you.
Today I'm sharing a trusty, easy, leave-it-to-the-slow-cooker cranberry sauce recipe.
You're already busy enough on Thanksgiving day, right? Why add to the stress when you can let your crockpot do the work on this delicious Thanksgiving side item?!
And it's fancy because it has apples in it, along with a hint of orange and ginger. Sounds good, eh? Well, it is!
Crockpot Cranberry Sauce with Apple, Orange & Crystallized Ginger
from Cookin Canuck
- 4 medium Gala apples, peeled, cored, quartered & sliced
- 1 (12 oz) package fresh cranberries
- 5 tablespoon brown sugar (or more to taste)
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger
Pour orange juice into the bottom of a large crockpot and add the apple mixture.
Cover, turn the crockpot setting to low, and cook for about 8 hours, stirring occasionally and breaking up the apple slices and cranberries with a wooden spoon as they soften.
Stir in crystallized ginger. Taste and add an additional tablespoon or two of brown sugar if too tart.
Serve warm or room temperature.
Perfect alongside some succulent turkey, gravy, and stuffing. Also perfect for leftover casseroles and sandwiches. Let's just say it's perfect.
Have a happy happy Thanksgiving!
Are you guys braving the Black Friday shopping?? I'm contemplating it...
