  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Cook Time: 10m
  • Total Time: 15m

Ingredients

  • 12 oz fresh cranberries, rinsed
  • 1/4 c freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 3/4 c unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/2 c grade A maple syrup
  • 1/4 c coconut sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add the orange juice, apple juice, maple syrup, and coconut sugar to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Let this mixture come to a boil before whisking in the cinnamon and sea salt.
  2. Pour the cranberries into the saucepan and reduce the heat to low heat. Simmer uncovered for about 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Don't be afraid of the popping noises, which indicate that the cranberries are bursting.
  3. Remove the cranberry sauce from the heat and gently mash the sauce with a potato masher. The more you mash, the less chunky it will be.
  4. Place the saucepan back on the stove to simmer for another 3 minutes. Turn off the heat but don't move the pot. Let the pot sit there uncovered for 20-30 minutes to thicken the mixture.
  5. Serve and enjoy. Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.
