Maple Spiced Cranberry Sauce Recipe

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week! We have enjoyed sharing new ingredients and recipes with our customers, as well as creating special food gifts for them to bring along for the holidays. On Friday, Sweet Rose Bakes shared a delicious Maple Spiced Cranberry Sauce, which we served with cheese and crackers. The sauce gets a nice boost of flavor from our Cranberry Balsamic vinegar!

½ cup maple syrup
½ cup brown sugar
2 ­ 3” slices of orange peel
