Made the cranberry sauce tonight using the America's Test Kitchen recipe: 1 cup sugar, 3/4 cup water, pinch of salt, 12oz cranberries. Simmered and stirred for about 10-15 minutes, added 2 tbs orange juice and some orange zest.
It's ok, but it's much sweeter than usual. I really like it more tart than sweet.
Can this be fixed? I thought about throwing in another half a bag of cranberries and cooking some more, or chopping up a Granny Smith apple and adding that in. Maybe add some nutmeg. I don't know how well these ideas will work.
An other suggestions? (No, I'm not going to the market to get a can of Jello style sauce.)
