Easy Cranberry Orange Sauce

You can quickly make a batch of sauce with this simple 30-minute recipe. It’s so convenient and so yum!

Ingredients:  – Navel oranges – Fresh cranberries – Honey or maple syrup – Orange juice – Cinnamon


Add the oranges (peeled with as much white pith removed as possible) to a blender and blend until mostly smooth.


Tip: If you don’t have fresh oranges, or don't want to peel them, use 1 cup orange juice total as your liquid.


Add oranges (or the orange juice, if using that instead) and the rest of the ingredients, starting with ½ cup honey, to a medium pot over medium-low heat.


Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until the berries are softened and mostly broken down and the sauce has thickened nicely.


Press down on the berries to help break them up as they cook. Remove from heat and taste for sweetness. If it's too tart for your liking, add up to an additional ¼ cup honey.


Spoon into jars and store in the fridge until ready to serve. This can be made up to 1 week in advance.


Serve as a side dish for Thanksgiving turkey, pork, Christmas dinner, on leftover turkey sandwiches, or as the fruit in Fruit-on-the-Bottom yogurt.
