Zesty Vitamix cranberry sauce (uncooked)

Vitamix-Cranberry-SauceJust in time for Thanksgiving… I’m with family for the holiday. My mom usually makes this cranberry sauce (or relish) with a food processor, but this year she couldn’t find the food processor because her Vitamix has displaced it in the kitchen. She was worried that the Vitamix would over-process the cranberries into a puree, but by pulsing it the cranberries came out perfectly. This sauce is best to make the day before you serve it so that everything steeps together.

1 peeled tangerine plus half the peel

12 oz cranberries

½ cup sugar plus more to taste

spices: allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, or five-spice powder

Put ingredients in container in order listed. Set Vitamix to variable speed seven, then pulse* repeatedly while continually using the tamper to push ingredients into the blades. Process until cranberries are chopped, but not fully pureed, about ten pulses. Scrape out into a bowl, cover, and let it sit in the fridge. Waiting overnight is best, but a few hours is also OK.

*If you have a Vitamix without the pulse switch, no problem—just flip the on-off switch up and down quickly.
