Yam and Carrot Delight & Kickin’ Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

Kickin’ Cranberry Sauce

This is a fabulous twist on standard cranberry sauce. Half an orange added, rind and all, gives it a zesty orange flavor. Cinnamon and ginger adds depth and richness. It’s tart and tasty and super easy to make.

12 oz. fresh cranberries
1 cup coconut sugar
1 cup water
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger, peeled and minced
½  navel orange

Place cranberries in small pot with water and sugar. Heat on medium low, reducing to low once it comes to a simmer. Stir occasionally.

Mince orange finely in food processor or by hand, including rind.

Add orange to cranberry mix along with ginger and cinnamon.

Allow to cook for 20-25 minutes or until the cranberries break down and sauce thickens as the water cooks off. Make sure to stir frequently so it doesn’t burn.

Serves: 4-6

Total cooking time: 30 minutes
