Maple Cranberry Sauce

Maple Cranberry Sauce

I’m not usually a cranberry sauce-kind-of-guy, so I have no prior experience making it from scratch. But when I came across this recipe for maple cranberry sauce it sounded good (even to me) so I hopped right in and made a double batch for Thanksgiving. It was a big hit.

  • 1 12 ounce fresh cranberries rinsed and picked over
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 orange juiced and zested


  • Transfer all ingredients to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Stir and let the mixture simmer. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened and all of the cranberries have burst. Stir occasionally.
  • Remove from heat and let cool slightly before serving.


I could not find fresh oranges so I substituted just over 1/4 cup of bottled no-pulp orange juice
