I’m so proud to say that I actually invented this recipe! I used the make the cranberry-orange sauce the standard old way, using cranberries, water, orange juice and white sugar. Until one day it dawned on me – why am I putting both orange juice and sugar there when I can use the orange juice concentrate instead, since it’s naturally really sweet? I started searching online to see if anyone has done it and found NOTHING! Some people would sweeten their cranberry sauce with maple syrup or honey, some would use the artificial sweetener, but nobody used the orange juice concentrate! I Googled “cranberry sauce” and “orange juice concentrate” together and combed through the results, and nobody has done it. So if you ever see this recipe on another food blog, that means they are my copycat! :)
