Last week I published a recipe for a Cranberry Satsuma Relish with Coconut and Ginger that I absolutely ADORE. Like that recipe, this recipe has been sitting in my drafts for well over three years, if not longer. I was so excited when I rediscovered these lost recipes and now it’s finally time to publish!

Since I know that not everyone is too keen on the raw cranberry relish and would prefer to have a more traditional cranberry sauce to go with their turkey dinner, I wanted to share this recipe too.

I get it. I love them both to be honest and would be quite happy with a dollop of each one on my plate of turkey and fixings.

For those who love their cranberry sauce, I have a super simple, super delicious recipe for you today. It’s my Citrus Ginger Cranberry Sauce and it’s pretty similar to last week’s recipe, only it is cooked which helps develop the flavors of the cranberry and citrus even more.

For those who love cranberry sauce, I have a super simple, super delicious recipe for you today. It's my Citrus Ginger Cranberry Sauce, cooked witch citrus and ginger which helps develop the flavors of the cranberry even more.


  • 4 cups organic cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 organic orange, zested, peeled, segmented, and chopped
  • 1 organic orange, zested and juiced
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 2 tbsp. honey or maple syrup (or more if you like it sweeter)
  • 1-2 tbsp. fresh grated ginger (1 tbsp. will be very mild, more will add a kick)
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. to 1 tbsp. organic cornstarch OR arrowroot powder (optional) OR a small sprinkle of psyllium husk powder (optional)


  1. Wash the skins of your citrus and zest and juice the lemon, lime, and one orange.
  2. Zest your second orange and then peel and segment it, removing the white membrane from the segments. Roughly chop the peeled segments.
  3. In a saucepan over low heat, combine all of the ingredients (stir everything together) and cover with a tight lid.
  4. Let the cranberries cook down for 30-45 minutes (stirring a couple of times) or until the cranberries are soft and some of them have popped.
  5. Depending on the consistency that you like your cranberry sauce, you can puree it in a blender or with your immersion blender. I like to leave mine a little chunky, so I use my potato masher and just gently mash some of the sauce until about half is mashed and half is not. I like a little chunk in my sauce.
  6. Your sauce should get relatively thick from the pectin in the orange, but if it's not thick enough for your liking, you can make a slurry of cornstarch or arrowroot with a little warm water and stir it in. Cook for about 5 minutes on low stirring regularly. This will thicken it quite a bit.
  7. Remove from heat and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
  8. You can serve hot, warm, or cold. It's delicious any way you choose. I love it with turkey, but it also tastes great plain, or over my dairy-free vanilla ice cream! 🙂
