Ginger Cranberry Sauce: Cranberry Recipe Roundup


Thanksgiving cranberry sauce is continuously a polarizing facet at Thanksgiving.

It sort of feels you might be both within the “I find it irresistible” camp or “I don’t handle it” camp. I used to be within the latter camp for a few years till I came upon cranberry sauce choices out of doors of the canned model that you’ll slice with a knife.

Level is, in case you’ve by no means had cranberry sauce past the can, I encourage you check out the selfmade model. It’s tremendous easy to make and flexible, too.

Upload ginger on your selfmade cranberry sauce to make it additional particular.

  • 12 ounce bag (about 3 cups) contemporary cranberries
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced contemporary ginger
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest

  1. Rinse cranberries and upload to medium pot. Upload water and orange juice, convey to a boil.
  2. Scale back to a simmer, upload in honey and ginger, combine smartly. Cook dinner for 10 – quarter-hour – cranberry skins will get started popping and the flesh will begin to cook dinner right into a sauce.
  3. Take away from warmth and let take a seat 5 mins. Combine in orange zest.


If you need a smoother sauce, mash with a potato masher.

Should you aren’t into ginger, go away it out. Or upload a cinnamon stick as an alternative. Change orange zest for lemon. Make it your individual new Thanksgiving custom. Or in all probability your new favourite sandwich unfold.
