    The most delicious and delicious cranberry sauce you’ll ever eat! I give this recipe a “10”!
    Thanks Kaleb!
    Happy Thanksgiving!🍁🦃🍽 💕🍂🥰🙏

  2. I just made this cranberry marmalade and it is great. I used a potato peeler to remove all the orange zest layer and a small amount of the pith from one orange. I then chopped the thin zest slices into smaller pieces. I used the juice and pulp from two hand juiced medium size naval oranges. I used a half cup of Texas Wild Flower honey. Wow! The aroma coming off this while simmering was wonderful. The cinnamon and orange came through and there was a mysterious background fragrance that was the honey. This recipe is fabulous and my batch is still just cooling in my container. I can’t wait to have it with the turkey I will smoke on Thanksgiving Day. Thank you, Kaleb.

    Double this recipe, because you’ll want it again and again – with toast and butter, or an accompaniment to just about anything (think IKEA’s lingonberry jam). Speaking of IKEA, their “Rajtan” 5 oz spice jars are a wonderful way to send a little cranberry sauce home with your guests! Tie a little ribbon around the lid if you’re so inclined for a nice touch. Kaleb’s recipe is SO easy and just the right note of tart and sweet. I love the marmalade aspect with the slivers of orange peel. Five stars!
