Olivia's Delicious Baked Cranberry Orange Sauce

Not Your Average Cranberry Sauce: New Twist To A Holiday Classic

Cranberry Orange Sauce

Cranberries with orange juice & orange peel is a great combination. Cinnamon stick is also a nice optional addition to this cranberry sauce recipe.

Baking cranberry sauce is a clever idea if you're baking other food, or don't have any room on the stove top.

If the reverse is true - no room in the oven - Olivia Sinton's cranberry sauce recipe is equally delicious cooked in a saucepan on the stove.

Cranberry sauce is traditionally associated with turkey, but we've found that it's perfect in a vegetarian or vegan Thanksgiving menu.

Cranberries are extremely compatible with Squash Pecan Casserole, Vegan Stuffing, or Shepherd's Pie (lacto veg, vegan) - just to name a few of our delicious Holiday Recipes!

We used 1/2 the amount of sugar recommended on the cranberry package. Use more if you like your cranberry sauce sweet instead of tart-sweet. Substitute an equivalent amount of stevia or other low carb sweetener to lighten the glycemic load.

Recipe Comments:

The baked cranberry orange sauce is really simple to make and delicious. I liked the sweet & tart taste that comes from not using so much sugar. I added the cinnamon stick. This recipe is a keeper! - Deborah P.
