Cranberry-Orange Sauce

This dish is easy to make, can be doubled and freezes well.

A modification of a recipe from the Junior League of San Francisco’s cookbook:

  • On the cooktop, 1 cup orange juice and 1 cup sugar.
  • Heat at med level until sugar dissolves.
  • Add one bag of cranberries and raise heat to med high . . . the sugar syrup will begin to bubble, cook about five minutes more until cranberries start to “pop” reduce heat, smash some cranberries against side of pan.
  • Turn off heat source and let cool in the pan. Serve chilled.


For those who are fortunate to have an EXTRA oven:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Use Crisco shortening to grease tin with 12 popover – place tin in oven for 5 minutes to melt Crisco.
  • Beat together: 1 cup whole milk, 1 Tbsp melted butter, 1 cup sifted flour, then add two beaten eggs (large). 
  • Fill cups ¾ full and bake for 15 minutes. 
  • DO NOT OPEN the oven door, reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake 20-25 minutes longer until golden brown. 
  • Serve immediately!
