My Mom took a microwave cooking classwhen we got our first microwave (late 80's). This is one of the recipies she got and we tried. It's actually pretty good and really simple to make. Great if you have a full stove top of food cooking and a free microwave.


  1. Put cranberries and cugar into a 4 cup microwave safe measuring cup or bowl.
  2. Add the juice and pulp of the orange.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap.
  4. Cook 3 to 6 minutes on high or until all berries pop.

This is certainly a quick-and-easy way to make your own cranberry sauce! Since I wasn't sure about the juice & pulp of the orange, I just peeled it & then diced it up SMALL & put all the resulting juice & pulp in! Easy to jazz it up, if that's what you want, but it's tasty just as it is! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's PAC]
