Here is the one I use:

1 1/2 c. orange marmalade

2/3 c. orange juice

1 cinnamon stick, broken in nalf

12 oz. bag cranberries

Combine the first 3, bring to boil.

Mix in cranberries, return to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium, simmer til berries burst and sauce thickens. (about 5 minutes). Put into a bowl for cooling.

I usually do this in the morning so when the dinner is done they've been cooling for the day.

Also don't let the orange scare you off. There isn't that much of an orange flavor.

Good Eats, Kid

P.s. the original recipe called for fresh Italian parsley to be stired in after cooling. And to season with black pepper. I've always skipped this step.

Here's my recipe that is always a hit and the jala pepper gives it a great flavor. Also after making it, taste for flavors as it may need a tad bit more sugar, etc

Cranberry Salsa

(Great with Baked or Deep Fried Turkey)

Makes about 2 cups, Serves 4-6

½ Bag of fresh or frozen cranberries(about 1 heaping cup)

2 teaspoons grated orange zest

¼ cup finely chopped onion

1-2 large oranges peeled membranes removed

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or coriander(available at Cub)

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger(can use bottled)

1 tablespoon or about 1 small to medium chopped jalapeno pepper

½ cup sugar

Chop cranberries coursely in food processor. Peel oranges and coursely chop in food processor remove all membranes before adding to bowl. The juice that is produced from chopping oranges should be added to bowl also. Add remaining ingredients. Try to allow flavors to blend overnight, serve room temp.

Heres my families favorite:

1# cranberries

1 orange

start with one cup of sugar, add more to taste

Cut orange into small chunks, peel and all

Place in blender with cranberries and sugar and pulse until orange and cranberries are coarse chopped

Refrigerate and enjoy. No cooking, simple and easy

For those who are diabetics, you may use half a cup of sugar and half a cup of splenda.

1 can cherry pie filling

2 bags frozen mixed berries

1 box yellow cake mix

2 Tblsp brown sugar

1 1/2 stick melted butter

1/2 cup oat meal

375-400 deg

13x9 greased pan.pour in cherries,spread out frozen berries,pour dry cake mix and spread even,sprinkle oats and brown sugar,drizzle

melted butter evenly and bake til crisp browns and filling is bubbling through.

thanksgiving version


I am going to substitute

1 can apple pie filling

4 apples chunked

2 cans of whole craberries

for the cherry pie filling and berries.

just figure it is a different twist on cranberries.
