Baked brandied cranberries sauce is a lovely and super easy recipe to make for Thanksgiving. You will never buy canned cranberries anymore!
Last year, I received a jar of these baked brandied cranberries sauce from my good friend, Audrey. Audrey “adopted” me long time ago, when I arrived to United States. She shared with me, over the years, many of her favorite recipes for the holidays. Some of these recipes also became part of my Thanksgiving collection that we cherish and love so much.
This year, I think the sauce will be incorporated into my growing recipe collection for Thanksgiving. It is a lovely and super easy recipe to make. It is so easy to put together that you have no excuse to keep buying that can of cranberry sauce from the store! Why? Because this is the best cranberry sauce you will ever eat!
The recipe is made with cranberries, sugar, brandy(yes, there is alcohol involved) and the zest of an orange. Everything is baked together, covered, in a baking pan. The result is a delicious cranberry sauce that keeps in the refrigerator for a long time and it goes well with all kind of meats.
A very handsome and delicious treasure! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
