This tart cranberry sauce is complimented with spices to make it a versatile holiday dish. Eaten alone as a partner to turkey and mashed potatoes or heaped upon a block of cream cheese as an elegant appetizer alongside crackers, everyone is sure to enjoy this spin on the traditional holiday dish. I used a recipe from this website, only slightly altered. Feel free to use the original recipe or the version I created here.


3 12 oz bags of fresh cranberries

3 cups granulated sugar

1 cup diced apple

⅔ cup water

⅔ cup fresh squeezed orange juice

zest from two large oranges

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. cloves


  1. Rinse cranberries and place in a large stockpot.

  2. Dice apple and add to cranberries.

  3. Zest and juice oranges, add to pot.

  4. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.

  5. Cook for an additional 10 minutes after boiling.

This sauce can easily be canned using a boiling water canning method, and stored for up to six months. Sauces, like jellies and jams, make great hostess and holiday gifts.
