I already did a post about the wonderful Cranberry-Orange Ginger Chutney that we made for our Thankful with Friends dinner party. However, in the final hours we got the craving to do one more cranberry dish. This was inspired by watching an Alton Brown ‘Good Eats’ episode and thinking “Hey! We have everything in the house to make this right now!”.
So what exactly is a Cranberry Dipping Sauce, and how is it different than having any other cranberry dish? This is a thin, but flavorful, sauce that is for dipping your turkey in, or drizzling over other items on your plate. It will also make an excellent addition to those leftover turkey sandwiches!!
Cranberry Dipping Sauce — from Alton Brown’s ‘Good Eats’ Season 1
12 ounces of cranberries
2 cups orange juice
3 cups ginger ale
2 Tbs brown sugar
2 Tbs maple syrup
Zest of 1 orange
Pinch of kosher salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium size saucepan and cook on medium-high heat until boiling.
Reduce heat to medium and all to simmer for 1/2 hour.
Use a stick blender (or regular blender) to make the ingredients smooth.
Dip your turkey, rolls, mashed potatoes, etc. in this wonderful sauce!
