Ginger Cranberry Sauce

  • Author: by Deanna Segrave-Daly, RD
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


Add ginger to your homemade cranberry sauce to make it extra special.


  • 12 ounce bag (about 3 cups) fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest


  1. Rinse cranberries and add to medium pot. Add water and orange juice, bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer, add in honey and ginger, mix well. Cook for 10 – 15 minutes – cranberry skins will start popping and the flesh will start to cook into a sauce.
  3. Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes. Mix in orange zest.


If you want a smoother sauce, mash with a potato masher.
