No roast turkey dinner is complete without an accompanying cranberry sauce! Because a Thanksgiving dinner is such a production, I wanted to keep the cranberry sauce simple and yet I did not want it to be the same old cranberry sauce from last year. Cranberry sauce is particularity good with this as it is easy to add simple flavours and this time I went with some freshly grated ginger. The ginger added a nice hint of the exotic to the cranberry sauce without overpowering it and without detracting from the enjoyment of that turkey and cranberry sauce flavour combo.
Gingered Cranberry Sauce
- 2 cups cranberries
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup sugar (or to taste)
- 2 tablespoons ginger (grated)
- Bring everything to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries burst and the sauce starts to thicken, about 10-15 minutes.
