My family doesn’t do cooked cranberry sauces. This is the the cranberry dish in our house. My granny made it, my mother makes and now so do I. It’s ridiculously easy and can be made several days in advance and tastes even better as it ages. Also, you get to use a meat grinder! Or the equivalent Kitchenaid attachment. I suppose you could use a food processor though I can’t vouch for the results.
- 1 12oz bag cranberries
- 1 unpeeled orange, preferably seedless
- 1 c. sugar
- 1/2 to 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Slice orange into eigths. Remove seeds if not seedless. Run cranberries and orange pieces through fine blade of a meat grinder. Mix in sugar and as many chopped pecans as you like. Chill and store covered in fridge until ready to eat. You can serve in a cut crystal bowl or vintage tupperware, preferably one in burnt orange. These are your only options.
