GINGER SPICED CRANBERRY SAUCE
It always surprises me how easy it is to make your own cranberry sauce, but how rarely people serve it homemade with their holiday feasts. Cranberry sauce takes just minutes to prepare and truly completes a traditional holiday meal. This cranberry sauce uses fresh cranberries, apple and orange, and has a complex flavor from autumn spices we have grown to cherish during the holidays. It has no added sugars and actually supports digestion (thanks to ginger) and healthy blood sugar levels (thanks to cinnamon), so be sure to add a spoonful to your turkey or side dishes this year.
12 ounces of fresh cranberries
1 apple, cored and diced
2 Tbs. of fresh orange juice
Zest from one orange
1” of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1 Tbs. of ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. of ground cloves
Pinch of ground nutmeg
¼ tsp. of sea salt
Rinse cranberries and add them to a small saucepan with ½ cup of purified water.
Heat stove to medium high, stirring occasionally. The cranberries will begin to pop; this is normal, simply keep stirring and reduce to a low simmer.
Add the rest of the ingredients (apple, orange juice/zest, ginger, spices and sea salt) and simmer until everything is soft, about 15 minutes.
Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator up to a week before ready to serve.
Serve with your holiday feast and impress your guests (and yourself!) with this delicious and Whole30 cranberry sauce!
