The Easiest and Best Cranberry Sauce You’ll Ever Have

  • Author: Debi


  • 12 oz. Organic Fresh Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Organic Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Organic Orange Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick


  1. Rinse the cranberries under cold water, removing any mushy ones.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat add the orange juice, water and sugar until it dissolves.  Add the cranberries and cinnamon stick and cook until they start to pop (15-20 min), stirring often with a wooden spoon.  Continue until all the popping sounds stop.  The more you stir it or mush it with a spoon the smoother the sauce will be.
  3. Remove from the heat and let cool.  The cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.  Serve at room temperature or cold.  Garnish with a little orange zest before serving.
