The warmth of the ginger and cloves and the brightness of the orange zest come together to make this a family favorite! You can use frozen cranberries if you can't find fresh--just simmer a few minutes longer. Make this ahead of time, and save yourself some stress on the big day!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water, sugar, orange juice, cinnamon stick, ginger, orange zest, salt, cloves, and allspice in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes.

    Advertisement
  • Stir cranberries into the sugar mixture in the saucepan and return to a boil over medium heat. Cook until cranberries start to burst and mixture thickens slightly, 8 to 10 minutes; sauce will thicken further upon cooling.

  • Transfer cranberry sauce to a bowl; remove and discard cinnamon stick. Store in the refrigerator; for best flavor, bring to room temperature before serving.

This is so good! Glad I made a double batch so there will be enough that I can enjoy it myself for the next few days and still have some for Thanksgiving in 4 days. Read More

Came out great, easy and clear directions. I didn't have allspice on hand so added a bit of pumpkin pie spice. Was delicious, will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

This is fantastic. It gets very thick and it s even tastier the next day. It works well with sweet or savory dishes. I used it on a crostata as well as with meatballs. It was a delicious addition to my oatmeal too. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I had a good feeling about this recipe and a large bag of cranberries, so I doubled the recipe. I am so glad I did, because this was the best cranberry sauce I have ever had! My original intention was to freeze leftovers, but I can’t stop eating it! Read More
