Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 oz fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup ginger beer or ale
  • 1/4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tbsp orange zest

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring often and using the back of a wooden spoon to smash cranberries against side of pan.
  3. Remove from heat; sauce will thicken as it cools.

Notes

For a strong ginger flavor, use an extra-spicy ginger ale or beer. Alternately, you can use a weaker ginger ale and throw in a few slices of ginger as the sauce cooks. Be sure to remove them before serving, though!
