  • 3 Cups Cranberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 1 tsp Orange zest
  • 1/8 tsp Ground cinnamon


  • Place all ingredients in a saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a gentle boil. Boil, while stirring, for 5-7 minutes until most of the berries have popped and the sauce is beginning to thicken.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool before serving.


  • This is best made the day before to allow to set in the refrigerator overnight.
  • If you like your sauce sweeter, you can increase the granulated sugar by ¼ cup and/or eliminate the orange zest.
