Super Easy (from scratch) Cranberry Sauce

I wanted to make my own cranberry sauce this year that was free from chemicals that the sauce from a can comes with, and that had no additives whatsoever, and was surprised at how easy it was to make and how delicious it turned out!

Adapted and changed from this recipe HERE.

Cranberry Sauce from Scratch:


  • 12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries (approx. 3 1/4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp. fresh ground ginger
  • 1 cup water


  1. Put everything in a pot, and turn your stove on.  
  2. Cook over a medium-high heat for approx. 30-45 minutes. DO NOT COVER or it will boil over and you don't want that. When most of the liquid is cooked out, turn your stove down to a simmer. The longer you let this simmer, the thicker the sauce will get don't let ALL the water cook out, though or it will burn. Stir more frequently near the end.
  3. Spoon all into blender and blend until smooth. Pour all contents into a dish/bowl that you want to serve it in.
  4. Allow this to cool in the refrigerator for a couple hours before eating (or eat warm, just make sure to let it cool first)!
