NO-COOK CRANBERRY SAUCE 2 WAY

December 30, 2014

Christmas dinner in the US. This just calls for cranberry sauce. In Austria you might even have a hard time getting cranberries – here even the gas station will offer some. My sister in law was nice enough to share her family recipe with us. An orange-cranberry sauce and an apple-cranberry sauce [my dad is allergic to oranges] – personally I like the apple version even better. Both look pretty much the same. Best of all – no need to cook anything. Just throw all ingredients together in a blender

You can – and should make this up to two days in advance. The acid of the orange/apple is going to break down the bitter flavors from the cranberries. The sauce will get more creamy and a deeper red with time.
