Fresh cranberries, a splash of bourbon, a sprinkling of brown sugar and a touch of vanilla. We have created the perfect companion for Tom turkey, the star of the Thanksgiving dinner table.
This recipe is quick, simple and the perfect side dish with plenty of wiggle room for improvisation. Whether you like your sauce thick or thin, your cranberries whole or mashed, this recipe will accommodate any flavor and texture.
If you would like more of a spicy flavor profile rather than zesty citrus, swap out the orange juice for apple juice or cider and add a bit of cinnamon or 2 cinnamon sticks. (Toss the cinnamon sticks after simmering)
You can make this ahead, cover and chill up to 10 days.
