CROCK POT CRANBERRY SAUCE

If you are not a cranberry sauce fan, try making this easy, fresh cranberry sauce in your crock-pot.  

Be sure to save the leftover cranberry sauce to make a Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese and Crock-Pot Cranberry Chicken.  

What ingredients are in this delicious cranberry sauce?

You can whip this flavorful cranberry sauce up in your slow cooker using a 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries, orange juice, orange zest, sugar, brown sugar, and allspice.

I have never like canned cranberries.  So, I had to try making my own.  What I do love is citrus especially orange juice and orange zest.  So, why not add it to something I do not like to make it taste incredible.  This cranberry sauce not only tastes terrific but smell amazing when cooking.  When making this sauce in my slow cooker, I used fresh cranberries.  The slow cooker broke the cranberries down.  The texture is not like Jello either.  

This recipe my favorite way to eat cranberry sauce.  I adapted this recipe from a bag of Ocean Spray cranberries.  Instead of cooking it on the stove, I used my slow cooker.  On holidays, when you have so many things cooking, and you have to keep an eye on having this cranberry sauce in my slow cooker was one less thing to watch. Yeah!
