Orange Cinnamon Honey Cranberry Sauce

January 18, 2010


I get bored with cranberry sauce far too easily. A few simple additions can perk this side dish up and add excitement to your plate.

Also consider using this as a sandwich spread, an ice-cream topping or in a barbecue sauce.

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 lb cranberries, rinsed
  • 1.5 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Simmer the honey and orange juice over medium high heat until they reduce and lightly coat the back of a spoon. Add 1 lb of cranberries and reduce the heat to med-low. Cook for 5 minutes until the berries have burst and formed a jell. stir in the zest and cinnamon, and cook to desired consistency (no more than 10 more minutes.)

I like my sauce chunky so I removed it from the stove after just 5 minutes.

Cool for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then pour into a glass jar. Enjoy!

    Ooooh homemade cranberry sauce? Very fancy, Miss May. =)

    At my school, we have penny wars for fundraising. Each class (9, 10, 11, 12) gets its own jar, and they fill each jar with coins. But, they can also “sabotage” other classes by putting dollars in their jars. It generally lasts a week. Count the money at the end of the fundraiser, with coins counting toward each class’s total, and bills counting as negative money. You can raise A LOT, and it gets pretty competitive! Give the winning class a small prize. =)
