Cranberry Orange Cherry Sauce

  • 1 (12 oz) bag fresh cranberries
  • 1/3 cup dried sweet red cherries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 heaping tablespoons orange and elderflower marmalade or orange marmalade of your choice
  • 1 ounce Kirsch, optional
  • 4 oranges, for orange cups
Cooking Directions
  1. In a 3-quart saucepan, mix cranberries, dried cherries, sugar, water and pinch of salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cranberries have popped open. Remove from heat, add orange marmalade and kirsch if using. Cool 1 hour. Spoon into bowl and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
  2. When ready to serve,  spoon cranberry orange cherry sauce into orange cups or serve in a serving dish.
How to make Orange Cups:

  • With a small serrated knife, score a line around the middle of each orange.
  • Then using the line as a guide, cut each orange in half in a zipzag pattern to make a decorative edge. Loosen the pulp from the shell; cut around the inside of each orange half with a knife.
  • Using a small spoon, carefully remove and discard the pulp, leaving the orange shell intact.
