Small chunks of orange along with orange and lemon zest give bright, fresh flavor to traditional cranberry sauce. You can make this several days ahead if you like — it keeps well in the refrigerator for a week. The recipe is a Yummly original created by David Bonom.

  • 1 lemon
  • 1 pound cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar

    Really delicious; zero complaints on this recipe! The orange really adds complexity to this bright, tasty side dish! We served it very cold. So good!

    Absolutely delightful! Love the tartness of the cranberries and the flavor of the citrus! I added pecans just because we like it that way.

    I'm sure this citrus cranberry sauce in yummy. I make a non-cooked similar version that was handed down to me from my sister-in-law many years ago and it always gets rave reviews. I have substituted Splenda for the sugar and it is just as good only without the extra calories. It is simply cranberries and orange including the zest, chopped plus the sweetener of your choice all stirred up. That is it! It too can be made ahead of time and keeps well in the fridge.
