  4. Chef’s Tips • Make ahead: Cranberry sauce can be prepared up to 1 week ahead. Store in refrigerator. Stir before serving. • Gingered Orange Cranberry Sauce: Prepare as directed, using ½ tsp (2 mL) each Club House Ground Ginger and Club House Pure Orange Extract in place of the cinnamon, grated orange peel and vanilla.
