Cranberry Sauce Made Simple

You do have options when it comes to cranberry sauce. You can buy a can of gelatinous cranberry sauce or you can be the hit of the Thanksgiving bash by making cranberry sauce from scratch, and it’s so simple there oughta be a law. Note that this recipe should be made a day in advance for best results.


12 oz. cranberries (fresh or previously frozen)
1 c. honey
1 c. orange juice with pulp (water works, but orange juice tastes better)
1 tsp. orange zest (optional)


Combine the ingredients. Bring to a boil (take care not to let it boil over). Simmer for ten minutes. Cool. Refrigerate. It is a good idea to make this recipe a day in advance so that it has time to set up in the refrigerator, otherwise, you risk having runny sauce. It becomes firmer when it is completely chilled.

This recipe serves about 6 people. Do the math to make enough for more.

Eat well, be well, live deliciously!
