Holiday Cranberry Sauce with Orange

I love this cranberry sauce because instead of using sugar, it is naturally sweetened with maple syrup. And, the orange zest and orange juice just really make this sauce pop! Enjoy!


  • 1 12oz Bag of Fresh Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Zest of 1 Medium Orange
  • Juice of 1 Medium Orange use the same orange you zested
  • tsp Cinnamon


  • Begin by rinsing your cranberries. Then put them in a sauce pan with the water and maple syrup. Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low, stirring occasionally until the cranberries have popped and the mixture has thickened to your desired consistency. 
  • Remove sauce from heat and stir in orange zest, orange juice and cinnamon. Taste and if mixture is too tart, add a little more maple syrup.
