Orange Cranberry Sauce

Here is one of my favorite Thanksgiving treats. I tried something different last year and did not like it as much as I like this one. So I went back to my tried and true recipe. Orange Cranberry Sauce. It's simple and simple is nice this time of year when things get a bit busier.

I made my cranberry salsa with the cranberry leftovers. I love that stuff.

Orange Cranberry Sauce
Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness

1 1/2 pounds cranberries
1/2 cup sugar (or to taste)
1 orange, juice and pulp
pinch of cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

In a food processor or blender, pulse cranberries together with sugar, cinnamon and orange juice. Pour into a glass bowl and let marinate at least overnight or up to two days. Fold chopped nuts in just before serving.

I love cranberry sauce. And pancakes. Either separately or at the same time!

Sounds nice & simple. Even I could make this (if I could only get my hands on some fresh cranberries).
