Take the bag of cranberries and give it a quick rinse under running water. Picking out any cranberries that are damaged and discarding it.
Take a medium size pot and pour the water in first
The orange juice is next. PS: you can use all orange juice if you like.
The white and brown sugars are added next.
Cook this until all the sugar has melted
Immediately after, add the cranberries.
Set the heat to high and bring this to a boil. Can you hear the cranberries popping? It sound like popcorn..love it😃
As soon as it comes to a boil, lower the heat to medium and cook until the mixture has thickened and all the cranberries have popped, this will take about 15min.
The cranberries are not ready, don't worry about the foam it will disappear.
Yes, the cranberry sauce is done. At this point you can leave as is. Just put into a mason jar and serve as a relish or continue to the next step to make the jellied version.
Take a bowl and put a large fine mesh sieve on it. Slowly add the hot cranberry sauce on it.
Gently start mashing the sauce through the sieve using a large spoon or a rubber spatula. Do this until no more pulp can be pushed through the sieve.
What is left behind, the skin of the cranberries. This can be discarded. My family enjoys a smooth sauce with no whole cranberries😁
Put the jellied cranberry In a mason jar to cool off. When it has cooled put the jellied cranberry sauce in the refrigerator. Serve it with your thanksgiving dinner. Enjoy. Yields 1 cup
