Fresh Cranberry Sauce

Fresh Cranberry Sauce

I do not enjoy eating turkey without cranberry sauce.  It’s just part of that whole dinner to me.  Once I tasted cranberry sauce made with fresh cranberries, I just can’t imagine going back to the canned kind.  This recipe is wonderful – the orange in it cuts the tartness of the berries perfectly.


6 ounces fresh cranberries
1 orange
½ cup sugar  (see note below if you want to use honey instead)
1 cup water
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon
1 TBS cornstarch


measuring cups/spoons
metal or wooden spoon


Zest the orange rind until you have 1 Tablesoon.

Juice the orange to ¼ cup.

Wash berries.


Bring the cranberries, orange zest, sugar, water, salt, and cinnamon to a boil.

Boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  The cranberries will “pop” as they boil – that’s a good thing.

Dissolve cornstarch in juice.  Add to the berries mixture.

Simmer for another 15 minutes.

Cool and serve.
