Easy Cranberry Sauce

1 Dec

Over Thanksgiving break I had time to do some cooking! I decided to make quick and easy cranberry sauce for my family. I made the cranberry sauce with cranberries from a local cranberry bog in East Sandwich, MA called PJ’s Cranberries. This recipe makes 4 cups of sauce but if you want less you can half the recipe.


2 pounds cranberries

3/4 Cup water

1 1/3 Cups Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg

1/8 Teaspoon Cloves

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1 Orange

2 Cinnamon Sticks

Yield 4 Cups


Add the cranberries and some of the water to a large pot on medium high heat, stirring occasionally. The cranberries will burst with popping sounds. Add more water as needed.

Once most of the cranberries have burst, add the juice of one orange, the zest from the orange, sugar and spices. Reduce the heat and stir until all cranberries have burst and sugar has dissolved.

Have a taste! You can add more sugar or spices to your taste preferences.

Remove sauce from heat and place in a container. Add a cinnamon stick and chill in the fridge. Remove cinnamon stick before serving, enjoy!
