Cranberry orange sauce is a sweet and tasty side for any Thanksgiving meal, but the real benefit is in the preparation: this recipe only takes three ingredients and about twenty minutes to make. Another plus? Cranberry orange sauce will keep up to a week in the fridge, so feel free to make it way ahead of time or in the half hour before the main meal.

Great recipe variation of one I use a lot, but I variously add coconut shreds, walnut pieces and/or chopped orange pieces.
