The flavor of this sauce is fantastic. Cranberries and oranges are natural pairings, and they go well together in this recipe. The flavor of the mandarin oranges and orange extract help to mask some of the tartness of the recipe, making it a side dish everyone will enjoy.
Cranberry sauce is one of the easiest holiday side dishes to prepare, and this recipe is no exception. It is a simple matter of putting all of the ingredients into saucepan and letting it simmer until most of the cranberries have popped and the sauce is the right consistency.
Another wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is frugal to make- it should cost under ten dollars to prepare it, and there is the added benefit of leftover mandarin oranges.
