This was pretty good. I thought that you would be able to tell that there was jellied cranberry sauce but you can't. I also tried to run the sauce through the blender and it wouldn't work (my fault not the fault of the recipe) and wound up having to peel off some zest with a grater and then using beaters to mix. I didn't have as much zest as I would have if I had used the peel but a little goes a long way for us.

Omit the orange zest.
