Healthy is Delish: Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce

Homemade Spice Cranberry Sauce

I grew up eating cranberry sauce from the can and I truly enjoyed it.  It would slide out perfectly in the shape of the can and plop onto the plate where we would cut up the jellied sauce into slices. As an adult however, I discovered how simple it is to make the real thing.  It takes just 10 minutes to create a perfectly tart, sweet, and spicy sauce that is a perfect side dish for holiday meals!  

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Yield: 6 servings 

  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1-2 jalapenos, seeded and minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 12 ounces of fresh cranberries


    1. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine the first 5 ingredients.  Once honey dissolves, add cranberries.   Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low.  Simmer for approx. 10 minutes.  Sauce will thicken.  
    2. Remove from heat and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Serve cold.
