This glaze gives roasted turkey a delicious sweet-tart flavor and a rich mahogany color. Brush it on the roasted bird during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
1 (12 ounce) bag fresh or frozen cranberries
2 teaspoons orange zest
1 cup pure maple syrup
½ cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, orange zest, maple syrup and orange juice. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally.
2. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, uncovered or until the cranberries burst and sauce is very thick.
3. Puree the mixture in a blender. If the glaze is too thick, thin it with a small amount of water. Refrigerate glaze until ready to use.
