1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tbs of orange zest

Bring water + sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan.
Add cranberries and return to boil.
Reduce heat, add orange zest and boil gently for 10min, stirring occasionally. Berries will start to pop.
Add orange juice, raisins + nuts. Remove from heat and stir together. Let cool. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.

Spread a thin amount of our Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce onto one of the sourdough slices. Pile on turkey slices, top with baby swiss cheese and add the second slice of sourdough. Spray bread slices with cooking spray. Add to grill or panini maker. Wait until the cheese is gooey and the bread is toasted!

Simple and delicious! Pour yourself a glass of your favorite Vino and enjoy (we have become fond of drinking our wine out of a standard mason jar!).
