This quick and easy cranberry sauce has the subtle flavors of vanilla and orange. It's been featured on our Thanksgiving menu for years.—Wilma Sue Sanders, Divide, Colorado
- 1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 vanilla bean, split
- In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, orange juice and vanilla bean. Cook over medium heat until the berries pop, about 15 minutes.
- Remove from the heat; remove bean halves. With a sharp knife, scrape the bean to remove the seeds; stir into sauce. Discard bean. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until chilled. Yield: 3 cups.

"This sauce is definitely worth trying! SO easy (only four ingredients--REJOICE!!!!) and fast. My husband was my taste-tester and said he thought it was really good!I think next time I make this (probably around Christmas) I will replace half the OJ with half a cup of apple juice just to give it a little more sweetness and balance the tartness of the cranberries. Or I may keep the OJ as-is and add another 1/4 cup of sugar to the mix. This is just to my family's preference. I may also add a second vanilla bean just because I love that flavor so much!"
