Homemade Red Cranberry Sauce

Planning your Thanksgiving menu, but you’re ready to try something different? Perhaps you’re preparing one dish to bring to someone else’s event, and you want to make a great impression…

Why not start with a slight spin on a traditional dish that is both healthy, delicious and easy to prepare!

Today’s dish is the cranberry sauce:

Cranberry-Orange Sauce with Thyme

Serves 8-10


4 cups fresh cranberries

¼ cup fresh-squeezed orange juice (about ½ an orange)

2 tsp orange zest

¼ – ? cup honey (depending on how sweet you like it)

2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme

¾ cup water


1. In a sauce pan, bring water, orange juice and zest, thyme, and honey to a slight boil over medium-high heat.

2. Add cranberries and stir. Return to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries start to burst. (Don’t worry— they won’t explode violently!)

3. Reduce heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is at the desired consistency.

4. Remove the thyme sprigs and discard. Remove from heat and let stand— the sauce will thicken as it cools.
