Holiday/Food Chronicles: Orange Cranberry Sauce

When I was little I hated cranberry sauce. Back then, cranberry sauce was that weird colored gel that plopped out of a can STILL in the SHAPE of the can. Ew. I never ate it.

Then one Thanksgiving my mom decided to try out whole cranberries to give me a second chance to taste it. She bought the real deal and we boiled them down in a pot. Amazing! I fell in love. Since then we always bought whole cranberries (even the canned kind) for holidays.

Now The Chew has offered up a new spin on traditional cranberry sauce! Who’s going to put this out this Thanksgiving?

Ingredients
  • 1 cup Swanson® Chicken Broth (Regular or Natural Goodness® or Certified Organic)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 package (about 12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped orange
