Simple Fresh Cranberry Sauce

I look forward to Cranberry Season every year. Cranberries are so good for your health and the tart flavor and popping texture are great for baking as well as making fresh cranberry sauce or jelly. But if it’s not currently cranberry season, just use frozen cranberries instead.

THE SIMPLE REAL FOOD INGREDIENTS

Simple Fresh Cranberry Sauce

In a saucepan over medium heat, add the cranberries, sugar, juice from a fresh orange along with the zest. Add some water and stir until everything is combined. Then cook until the cranberries start to pop. You can help the cranberries pop by pressing them against the side of the pan with the back of your spoon.

Once the mixture starts to bubble, turn the temperature down to low and let it simmer until all the berries are soft. Then remove from the heat and let it rest while it thickens. Stir once more and let the sauce cool a little. After that, stir in a tablespoon of good quality honey for a little more sweetness. I don’t cook the honey to help retain its health benefits.

Place the cranberry sauce in a cute bowl and serve with a holiday turkey dinner along with all the other sides or anytime poultry is served. Cranberry sauce goes great with chicken too. It also goes great on a turkey sandwich!

Some people say cranberries are one of the worlds healthiest foods. They are a fantastic antioxidant and have important anti-inflammatory benefits. Check out my Cranberries, the Small Powerful Superfruit post for more details.
