Our Super Easy Fresh Cranberry Sauce - Thanksgiving 2023

You have no excuses to use canned gelatinous cranberry sauce - making your own is super easy and you'll never go back to canned!!


  • I bag of cranberries

  • 1/2c maple syrup

  • 2 oranges

  • pinch salt


  1. Divide the cranberries: add all but 1c cup of cranberries to a medium sauce pan. Keep the 1 cup aside for later.

  2. Zest both oranges and juice one orange and add to saucepan.

  3. Add maple syrup and salt and bring to boil over medium heat.

  4. Turn to low heat, and simmer until cranberries start to pop and sauce thickens.

  5. Add remaining cranberries and cook on low until cranberries pop (about 5 minutes).

  6. Cool. It will thicken as it cools. It's still a bit on the sour side, which we like, to play off the richness of the rest of the meal. But feel free to add more maple syrup if you'd like it sweeter.

  7. Enjoy! We like it at room temp, but you can also serve it chilled, or gently rewarmed.
