Maple Cranberry Orange Sauce 🍊


👩‍🍳This week’s food of the week – the cranberry – is tart, tasty, and super trendy this time of year.

I’ve got a recipe for you that’s a fresh take on cranberry sauce. 

It’s made from simple whole food ingredients, it’s easy to throw together, and it’s delicious as a topper for chicken or turkey, or in sandwiches. 

You can even stir it into Greek yogurt or oatmeal!

✅TIP: If you can’t find fresh cranberries, frozen will work. Just let them thaw first.

🍊Maple Cranberry Orange Sauce 🍊

Makes 4 ½-cup servings

  • 12 oz (340 grams) whole fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup (120 ml) pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup (120 ml) water
  • ½ cup (120 ml) orange juice (freshly squeezed if possible)
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Using a strainer, rinse the cranberries and place them in a medium pot. Stir in the maple syrup, water, and orange juice, and add the cinnamon stick. Heat over medium-high heat until the sauce reaches a boil.

Lower the heat to medium-low and let the berries simmer for about 10-15 minutes until the mixture is syrupy. It’s normal for the cranberries to pop as they cook.

Remove from heat and allow to cool. Serve at room temperature or slightly warm.
