ORANGE-SCENTED CRANBERRY SAUCE

Ingredients: 

2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened cranberries

 

4-6 tbsp. coconut palm sugar, honey or agave

 

Pinch of sea salt

 

1 orange cut up with peel

 

1/4 cup orange juice (can be subbed with apple juice if desired)

 

1 tsp. finely chopped fresh ginger

 

Options:
For a different flavor, add 1 or 2 diced apples to cook alongside the berries.

For chutney, add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans after cooking.

Instructions: 

1. In a medium saucepan, add all ingredients and bring to a boil.

 

2. Stir and reduce heat to bring to a simmer on medium-low and let cook for about 10-12 minutes.

 

3. Halfway through cooking (5-6 minutes), use a fork or a spoon to mash the berries and release more of their juices.

 

4. Let cook for another 5 minutes, occasionally stirring and mashing until thick; the sauce will thicken more as it cools.

 

5. Serve immediately warm or refrigerate until ready to serve for a chilled sauce. Heat on low to reheat if preferred warm and enjoy!
