Spectacularly Easy Tart Cranberry-Orange Sauce

The title says it all. What's more this is a mix it up and do something else recipe. It requires so little effort is is laughable. Just mix, bake, and chill.
This Recipe is going to get a permanent spot on out Thanksgiving table. My mom asked me to make more for the Turkey after I whipped up a batch for my Cranberry Orange Cheesecake! It is that good. My family likes hings a little on the tart side, so if that is not your style, add a bit more sugar.

Recipe (adjusted from My Recipes):

One package (12 oz) fresh Cranberries
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tsp grated orange zest (remember if your zesting an orange, just juice it too and use the fresh squeezed)

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Rinse berries and pick out any squishy fruit
  3. In a 9 in square baking pan mix all ingredients with spoon
  4. Bake in oven for ~hour. Mixing with spoon every 20 min or so.
  5. Cool and refrigerate
That's it! No endless stirring at the stove top. Just pop it in and out. And I promise, it is worth the oven space. I have been enjoying it on my turkey sandwiches I've been taking to school, and on my cheesecake, and couldn't be more thrilled!
