Cranberry Sauce

Here are a couple of Cranberry Sauce recipes, one made a day or two before the big day and is made in your slow cooker. And another recipe that no cooking is required, it is a quick and easy way to make your own cranberry sauce by adding a few extra condiments you may already have in your pantry and you can actually make a tastier and healthier Cranberry Sauce.

  • 1 12 oz bag Fresh Cranberries
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice fresh squeezed
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 stick Cinnamon
  • pinch Ground Cinnamon
  • pinch Ground Ginger

In a slow-cooker, add all ingredients and toss to combine.

Cook on low for 3-4 hours

Near the end of the cooking time, use tongs to remove the cinnamon stick. Then use a wooden spoon to break up the cranberries. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
