Making cranberry from scratch is super-easy and only takes about an hour at most. Since whole (huge!) pomegranates seem to be popping up everywhere for cheap right now, I think this sauce will be a good addition to this year's Thanksgiving table.
I'm going to experiment today with cranberry-clementine and triple-ginger cranberry-apple. Basically, you can make up any combination of juice, zest, sugar, spice, and cranberries -- it's sure to be better than whatever is hiding out in those cans.
2 pints cranberries (organic ones taste sweeter)
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1 whole pomegranate
3/4 cup cane sugar
1 tbsp. honey
Meyer lemon zest
pinch of salt
dash of clove powder
Rinse cranberries and pour them into a tall-ish saucepan. Pour in pom juice. Turn heat on medium-low. Cut the whole pomegranate and remove the seeds; you can run them through a food processor and strain out the seeds. Pour that into the pan along with the sugar, honey, lemon zest, salt, and clove. Cook for about 30-40 minutes until the cranberries pop and the sauce thickens.
huuuum that seems to be delicious! :D
Mario's mom here - sure looks good.
We'll see which of the 3 sauces gets the highest marks tomorrow!
Hey! Blog of note! Congratulations!
yummy! Just came across this blog because it's a 'blog of note'. Good timing, as I am transitioning to a life of little meat. :)
So far, the family has like cranberry-clementine the best. Simple: juice 5 clementines, add their zest, 2 pints cran, dash of salt and cinnamon, plus 2/3 c sugar. Cook. Done.
fresh cranberries, and thinly sliced oranges makes a great sauce..
I made this and it was delicious!
Congrats on Blog of Note...just found you and intend to follow you. Trying to eat better and hopefully will find ideas....thanks
Your blog is deliciously beautiful. I love the photography. Will just feast my eyes on your posts rather than feast on the food.
Looks awesome! Will try out.
Lots of love for you new folks! We are bowled over by all of this!

I made tipsy cranberries this year. It was great. Bag of fresh berries, about 1/4 cup Jack Daniels (the alcohol cooks out), and sugar (about a cup). Cook on low heat until the berries pop. Add about 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Serve cold. I probably added two cups of sugar. Couldn't get it sweet enough. But it was good.
Looks rather festive to me! a definate for christmas this year!
This looks so good. YUM!!
What a beautiful looking and inspirational blog. Keep up the good work!
