This was SO GOOD. We ate it for days after Thanksgiving, and when the container in the refrigerator was empty, I made another batch! It’s incredibly simple and the perfect accompaniment to any poultry dish.


6 ounces fresh cranberries
1 orange
½ cup sugar or honey
1 cup water
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon
1 TBS cornstarch


measuring cups/spoons
small bowl


Zest the orange peel until you have 1 TBS
Squeeze the orange until you have ¼ cup


Mix the cranberries, orange zest, sugar, water, salt, and cinnamon in the saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes.

Dissolve the cornstarch in the orange juice.

Slowly add to the cranberry mixture, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.


Makes 2 cups.

Very high in vitamin C
Low in sodium
No saturated fat
No cholesterol

I served it cold with Thanksgiving dinner.
