Joy of Cooking Recipe: Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauceFew 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 cranberry sauce is the ideal accompaniment to a perfectly roasted turkey. From Joy of Cooking: 75th Anniversary Edition.

Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
6 to 8 servings

Combine, bring to a boil, and stir until the sugar is dissolved:
2 cups sugar
2 cups water

Boil the syrup 5 minutes. Add:
4 cups cranberries (1 pound)

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

(2 teaspoons grated orange zest)

Pour the berries into a serving dish and chill until cold throughout, about 3 hours or up to one day.
