Pammy's Cranberries and Mandarin Oranges

Total Time

This is kinda tasty. We like it warm but can be served chilled. Hubby gives it 4 stars and he doesn't like cranberries. I'm sure you can add the sugar while cooking but this is how I like to do it. I'm guessing on servings.


  1. Wash cranberries.
  2. Put cranberries in medium saucepan.
  3. Add juice from mandarin oranges (about 1/2 cup).
  4. Cut each mandarin orange section 6 times.
  5. Put the mandarin oranges in with the cranberries.
  6. Heat to boiling, stirring often.
  7. After it boils, stir constantly.
  8. When cranberries are"gone" or"dissolved" remove from heat.
  9. It will be kinda"thick".
  10. Put in serving dish, cover and refridgerate.
  11. When ready to serve, I add 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar and warm in the microwave, stir very well before serving.

Very good. I used mandarin oranges, but I think I will use navel oranges next time. I think the mandarins were slightly overcome by the cranberries. And for our tastes, a little more sugar is needed. But, overall, the recipe can stand as it is. Thnx for posting, Packer Baker Pammy. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
