Thanksgiving is over for this year, but there is always Christmas Dinner (or any time of year) to make delicious, homemade cranberry sauce. I’ve never made cranberry sauce before, but I did this year…and it was delicious! So I thought I would share with you all what I did, as well as introduce you to the awesome Chef Prove Zester/ Grater. Continue on to see what recipe I used and how the zeter came into play…

For review, I was sent the Chef Proven Zester/ Grater pictured at right. I’ve wanted a nice zester/ grater for a while, so I was excited for the chance to give this one a try. My initial impression of it is quite good overall. It’s sharp and makes zesting quite effortless. I imagine it would also be great for grating hard cheeses, like parmesan.

The picture below is from the post-Thanksgiving “Thanksgiving” Feast I baked. I’ll post another post next week sharing with you all what the heck I mean by that. In short, I made a Thanksgiving Feast a couple weeks ago for the purposes of making freezer dinners and turkey stock for soups. Yum!

One of the dishes I made was cranberry sauce from the berries. I have always just used canned cranberries and never homemade. I didn’t realize how easy it was! I would have done this years ago. Super delicious, easy to make, and not too terrible for you.

Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce

1 package whole cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 orange, juiced and zested

Simmer cranberries, sugar and water together as specified on the packaging. Add orange juice and zest once sauce is finished simmering. Cool before serving. 

I don’t want to give away the exact recipe, because it is Ocean Spray’s, but generally all cranberry sauces follow a similar recipe. This one features a little twist with the added orange juice and zest.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Chef Proven Zester! It was just what I needed for creating the perfect yummy twist on traditional cranberry sauce. I would recommend this zester to anyone looking for one. It’s sharp, easy to use and the handle is comfortable to hold. I look forward to continuing to use it! I’m excited to try grating hard cheeses next.
