Nutrition: per serving



  • 250 g Cranberries
  • 150 g Sugar
  • 120 ml Water
  • 1 Orange Zested and juiced


  • Thoroughly rinse the cranberries under cold water, ensuring the removal of any stems or blemished berries.
  • Take a medium-sized saucepan and combine the cranberries, granulated sugar, water, and the zest and juice of one orange.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until the cranberries have burst, and the sauce has thickened to your preferred consistency. Stir occasionally during this process.
  • Taste the cranberry sauce and adjust the sweetness if necessary by adding more sugar, one tablespoon at a time, and stirring until it dissolves.
  • Once the cranberry sauce achieves your desired thickness and sweetness, remove it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Transfer the cranberry sauce to a serving dish or a jar if you plan to store it. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Allow the cranberry sauce to cool completely before serving. You can refrigerate it for a few hours before serving to achieve an even thicker consistency.
