List of Ingredients to Purchase

 

Grocery store items (by location where I find them)

  

 

Produce Department

1 pound Cranberries

 

Spice / sugar/flour section  

 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

 1 stick Cinnamon

2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup

Other aisles

2 cups Orange Juice

3 cups Ginger Ale

 

 

 

 Recipe steps:

Peel carrot.

Ingredients needed

1 pound Cranberries

 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

 1 stick Cinnamon

2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup

2 cups Orange Juice

3 cups Ginger Ale

 

Stainless steel boiler

 

 

First, pick through the cranberries and get out all the ones that are wilted or very dark Also make sure to get out all the stems. Once you’ve picked through all the cranberries, add the cranberries to a large stainless steel boiler.  To the 1 pound Cranberries, add 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar, 1 stick Cinnamon, 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup, 2 cups Orange Juice, and 3 cups  Ginger Ale.

 

Heat over medium high heat until the mixture comes to a boil.  Large bubbles will start forming on the top of the mixture when it starts to boil.  Turn heat to medium and simmer for about 45 minutes.  Small bubbles will come to the top of the mixture along the sides when it is simmering.   You may need to turn the heat slightly up or down to continue the liquid simmering.

Remove the cinnamon stick.

Use a stick blender to blend everything to a smooth purée.

 

I usually serve this in small clear plastic cups that I have purchased at the party store.  The sauce is very thin and needs its own serving container.
