If you are just joining in with Thanksgiving for 6 Under $60 – be sure to check out the menu and the shopping list so you can follow along easily.

We have already made our stuffing prep, pie crust dough and our appetizer. This next one, I prefer to do before hand but you can wait if you’d like. Since it is quick and easy it isn’t a big deal if you wait until day of. Just keep in mind what all you are doing “actual day” and get as much done before hand as possible. ** Apparently my cranberry sauce is called “relish” – I refuse to agree because relish sounds disgusting. Sauce it is :)

Cranberry Relish Sauce

Prep Time: 2 min Cook Time: 10 min Serves: 6 (make a double batch if your crew loves their cranberry sauce)

One bag fresh cranberries, rinsed
1 Cup Water
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Orange, cut in half (keep the peel on)
**Optional to add in one cinnamon stick
**OPtional to add several whole cloves to your orange

Combine cranberries, water, walnuts and sugar into a kettle and stir thoroughly.
Add in the orange and your optional items, if using.
Simmer over a medium heat until the berries burst – longer if you like your sauce more sauce, less time if you want it more chunky.

Add sugar and chopped walnuts to the cranberries and water.

Stir together gently.

Make a disproportioned dragonfly out of the oranges and cinnamon stick Рit will make you happy ;) Okay, maybe that part is optional.

Once the sauce is cooked down to your liking – set aside the orange and cinnamon stick – you will want to use these in your “plating” on T-day.
