Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    3 cups whole fresh cranberries (1 package)
    1 naval orange
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup dried currants

Directions

Wash and clean cranberries, removing any stems, leaves, and soft berries. Wash naval orange.

With a small sharp knife, remove outside peel of orange, leaving the bitter white pith. Remove the white pith from the orange and discard. Cut orange into pieces and remove any seeds.

Put cranberries, orange peel and orange pieces into food processor or blender. Process until everything is pretty much liquified. (You may need to do several batches.)

Empty processed fruit into a storage container. Add sugar and dried currants, and stir to combine. Allow flavours to blend for at least a day before serving. Can be made several days ahead of your festive meal, and keeps well (if there is any left!)

One serving is about 1/4 cup.

Number of Servings: 12

    We added some crisp apple and celery to give it a crunch and used Spledid to cut the calories. Occasionally it needs some F/F Cranberry Jello to help it set up. - 12/22/10
