Helpful Tips

  • This is definitely a recipe that you can tweak to your taste. It’s more tart than sweet, so feel free to add more sugar and orange juice to the cranberries. (I promise I won’t tell.)
  • Another option is to substitute apples or pears for one bag of the cranberries.
  • For the crumble topping, use whatever nut you like or have on hand. Pecans or walnuts would be delicious.
