Fresh Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce with Orange Zest and Ginger
Yield: About 2 cups
Although PCC carries some excellent organic canned cranberry sauce, the beauty of making your own is the flavors you can meld into it with so little effort.
Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until berries pop open and release their juices, about 15 minutes.
Cranberries are very tart, so taste for sweetness and add more maple syrup if you like. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
For a smoother sauce, cool to room temperature and run through a food mill or puree in a food processor.
Make ahead: Prepare up to 3 days in advance of serving; keep refrigerated.
