Main Ingredients

  • 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries
  • 2 tangerines or clementines, zest and juice
  • 1/2 cup O Organics® raw honey
  • 1/2 cup O Organics® 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp O Organics® vanilla extract
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (optional)

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add cranberries and heat on medium-high. Add in the zest of the citrus and squeeze in citrus juice. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. Cranberries will start to pop. Mash them to the side of the pan with a fork as they soften. 

Step 2

Pour in honey and maple syrup. Turn heat to medium and stir occasionally. Cook another 10 minutes, popping the cranberries by mashing them as they cook.

Step 3

Turn heat off and stir in vanilla. If desired, add in two cinnamon sticks. Sauce will thicken as it cools. Serve warm and store leftovers in the refrigerator!
