Thanksgiving Dinner: Cranberry Preserves

This is a new take on cranberry sauce. The recipe was inspired by one I saw on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. It’s very versatile and would make a terrific spread on toast and biscuits. I will definitely make cranberry preserves again. Enjoy!

Cranberry Preserves
1 bag fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
Zest from 1 orange
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup dried cranberries

1. Combine fresh cranberries and next 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cover and cook on low for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and mixture begins to thicken. Stir in dried cranberries, and cook 5 more minutes. Serve warm, at room temp, or chilled.
