Make the holidays merrier with homemade cranberry sauce! Just five minutes of your time makes a delicious cranberry sauce with a hint of orange and ginger!
Homemade Vs. Storebought
Cranberry sauce is always a big debate. When I was a little girl, my grandmother would plunk out the canned cranberry sauce. I never liked it and when I got older I thought I would give cranberry sauce one more try. I made this five minute version and fell in love. It tastes amazing on top of rolls, turkey and stuffing!
Just a few simple ingredients are needed and a few minutes of your time.
- Fresh cranberries
- Orange juice
- Maple Syrup
Mix it all together in a saucepan and you've got one great sauce!
Does Cranberry Sauce Contain Any Food Allergens?
This one shouldn't! It's perfectly safe for gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, vegan, and vegetarians.
Five Minute Cranberry Sauce
- 12 oz cranberries fresh or frozen
- ½ cup orange juice
- ½ cup maple syrup
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- In a saucepan, combine the cranberries, orange juice and maple syrup. Heat on medium heat until cranberries begin 'popping' and sauce is formed. Stir frequently.
- Once cranberries have formed a sauce, remove from heat and stir in ginger and salt. Serve.
This looks delicious.

That sounds so good! And I love that it uses natural sweeteners over sugar.
You're Thanksgivings sound like a great time and you have such a good attitude...here or there you're together.
Thanks for the cranberry recipe. Cranberry sauce goes with so many other things after turkey day, I love it!

Love the idea of making cranberry sauce in your slow cooker so you can free up the stove for other things!
