Cranberries need plenty of aded sweetness to mellow their tartness; for this we rely on wholesome dates and juicy oranges. This is an amazingly simple recipe to prepare, and it is alway a big hit, even with those who are used to more conventional holiday fare. Another bonus is that it can be made two to three days in advance.
1 teaspoon orange zest (opitional)
1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries, rinsed well well and drained
4 pitted dates, or more as needed
If using, remove the orange zest before juicing the oranges. Transfer the orange zest, orange juice, and all the remaining ingredients to a blender and process just until chunky. Taste and blend in more dates, one at a time, if additional sweetness is needed.
If you prefer, an equal amount of frozen cranberries may be used instead of fresh cranberries. Thaw them before processing.
