Cranberry Sauce


12 ounces of fresh rinsed cranberries

1 cup of coconut sugar (turbinado sugar works good too but you can also use regular sugar)

3/4 cup of water

1 tablespoon of orange zest

Juice of one large orange

1 cinnamon stick


Step 1: Heat a large pan with water over medium-high heat.

Step 2: Add your sugar and mix until the sugar is dissolved in the water.

Step 3: Add the cranberries, cinnamon stick, orange juice, and orange zest. Mix together.

Step 4: Cover your pot and cook until all of the cranberries popped.

Step 5: Remove the lid and stir once again then turn off the heat.

Step 6: Allow the cranberry sauce to cool. As it cools it will thicken.

Step 7: Remove the cinnamon sticks and chill in the fridge or enjoy right away.
