You can do this.

Our fabulous Apple Cider, Brandy and Tangerine Glaze is used to glaze our Brandy and Tangerine-Glazed Roasted Turkey. It is out of this world. However, this glaze is ideal for other poultry and pork—such as pork loin roast and bone-in ham.

This spectacular glaze is so versatile that it doesn’t matter if your Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey is brined and/or stuffed or not. This is because half of the recipe is brushed onto the roasting turkey about an hour or so before the end of roasting time (depending on the weight of the bird). Once the turkey is removed from the oven, the remaining is brushed on—just before resting and carving.

As a finishing glaze, our Cider, Brandy and Tangerine Glaze simply cannot be beat. The flavor profile is beyond scrumptious.

When I first made this wondrous glaze, and tasted it from the spoon, I could not stop! No joke. The Big Lug could not get over the fact that this glaze was concocted right in our own kitchen. Immediately, he requested it as a glaze for our Christmas bone-in ham!

If you are a fan of bright citrus and brandy, and enjoy savory with a little sweet-heat, and perhaps a whisper of smoky notes, you will be smitten with this glaze and it will soon become a favorite. Ever since I first made it, I have been scheming over other applications for favorite appetizers, like savory pork meatballs, and main dishes—perhaps even as a dipping sauce! Seafood prepared at home may never be the same.

Our Cider, Brandy and Tangerine Glaze is the perfect addition for those who enjoy a festive glaze “topping off” their holiday turkey or roasts. For either Thanksgiving or Christmas, the flavors of this divine glaze pair famously with classic holiday side dishes such as cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes. A new classic has arrived.

Here are more Thanksgiving recipes found on the blog that you do not want to miss—especially the Christmas Cranberry Buckle. We always enjoy it as a “Day After Thanksgiving” breakfast treat to kick off the Christmas holiday season!

We’re just insanely crazy about incorporating apples, apple cider, citrus, cranberries and brandy into our Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday dishes. But, don’t worry. More Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes will be coming in the near future with layers of flavors—of the savory kind, too.

Cider, Brandy and Tangerine Glaze

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Makes 1½ cups; enough to glaze a 16- to 20-pound turkey.

Cider, Brandy and Tangerine Glaze

Gorgeous, golden and sublime citrus finishing glaze, kissed with Grand Marnier®, to make your roasted turkey, pork roast or ham the sparkling gem on your holiday table. Made in just 15 minutes, it’s the perfect “crowning touch” for your Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham. Your holiday guests will rave!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240 grams) tangerine marmalade, such as Stonewall Kitchen
  • 1 cup (240 ml) Grand Marnier® (orange brandy), brandy or Cognac
  • 5 tablespoons (75 ml) fresh apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) organic apple cider vinegar, such as Bragg®
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or ½ to ¾ teaspoon regular table salt
  • 2 tablespoons (38 grams) unsalted butter
  • Special Tools or Supplies
  • Basting brush or pastry brush

Directions

While the turkey is roasting, prepare the glaze.

In a small saucepan, combine marmalade, brandy, apple cider, cider vinegar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thickened to syrup consistency and reduced to 1½ cups, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted and well blended. Set aside to cool completely.

To use the glaze when roasting turkey, simply brush half of the glaze (¾ cup) over the uncovered turkey (remove any foil, first) just before the last hour to hour and a half of roasting time—calculated by the weight of the turkey.

Once the turkey has finished roasting (according to the recipe being followed), remove from oven. Immediately, brush the remaining glaze (¾ cup) over turkey. Allow the turkey to rest before carving and serving.

Recipe Notes

Tips:

The glaze can be prepared one (1) day in advance. Cool completely, uncovered. Cover and refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use. Bring to room temperature before using.

Orange marmalade may be substituted for tangerine marmalade.
