We first made this Orange Cranberry Dessert Sauce to top slices of pound cake for a Thanksgiving dessert we were testing a few years ago. It was such a hit with our whole team that we often make a batch to top other desserts all year round. A delicious citrus spin on traditional cranberry sauce, it's something everyone will love. 

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons triple sec or other orange-flavored liqueur (optional)

What to Do

  1. In a saucepan, combine cranberries, orange juice, sugar, and orange peel. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Carefully pour into a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl and stir in liqueur, if desired. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.



This sauce dresses up vanilla ice cream beautifully - both in looks and taste!

Uncle Sam's Pulled Pork

Here's a recipe that's anything but taxing! Uncle Sam's Pulled Pork is a budget-friendly, weeknight winner. In this recipe, we slow cook boneless pork butt to perfection with some chopped onions and a can of cola. A little BBQ sauce and it's ready to go! Just pile it onto a roll along with some of our homemade coleslaw and you're set for lots of "yum!"
