- 15-16 ounces fresh cranberries
- Organic honey or maple syrup to taste (about 1-4 tablespoons)
- Juice + zest of one orange
In a medium-sized sauce pot, simmer the cranberries with the water/juice until all berries have “popped” open, and the texture is gelatinous. Add the honey or maple syrup to taste.
Remove the mixture from the heat, and allow it to come to room temperature before refrigerating for later use.
change it up:
To make a chunky cranberry sauce, add 1 cup mandarin orange segments, drained; 1 cup pineapple (fresh is ideal; check canned for additives, and get one without added sugar); 1/2 cup raw walnuts, chopped (soaked/ dehydrated raw nuts are ideal).
