Joy of Cooking Recipe: Whole-Berry Cranberry Sauce

 Whole-Berry Cranberry Sauce from Joy of CookingFew side dishes are able to play off the roast turkey as well as freshly made cranberry sauce. Tangy, vivid, and sweet, and not in the shape of a tin can, this dish is the ideal accompaniment to a perfectly roasted turkey. John Becker and Megan Scott, co-authors of Joy of Cooking: 2019 Edition, share a recipe for Whole-Berry Cranberry Sauce.

Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
6 to 8 servings

Bring to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring until the sugar is dissolved:

            2 cups sugar

            2 cups water

Joy of Cooking: 2019 Edition coverBoil the syrup for 5 minutes, then add:

4 cups cranberries (1 pound), picked over

Simmer the berries in the syrup very gently, uncovered, without stirring, until the berries are translucent, about 5 minutes. Skim off any foam. If desired, add:

            (Finely grated zest of 1 orange)

Pour the berries into a serving dish. Chill until firm.
