Orange and Apple Spiced Cranberry Sauce

Prep Time 8 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 28 minutes
Servings 8


  • 1 12 oz bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1 orange zest and juice
  • 1 apple peeled and diced (I like to use Granny Smith)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar


  • In a medium sized saucepan, over medium heat, add fresh cranberries, orange juice, orange zest, diced apple, cinnamon stick, water and sugar.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sauce has thickened. Should be only about 15 minutes.
  • Once desired thickness has been reached, remove the pan from heat and take out the cinnamon stick. Then, either serve immediately, or let cool in the fridge and serve later!
