Each year at our camp in Maine, cranberries grown along the marshy area near the waters edge. By mid September, it is time to harvest them. It has become a tradition in my family to use the berries to make Fresh Cranberry Sauce, which we serve for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
- 24 ounces fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- zest of one large orange
Step 1: rinse and drain the cranberries
Step 2: combine all ingredients in a medium size Dutch oven
Step 3: bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 20-25 minutes (you will hear the berries popping during this step)
Step 4: stir the sauce well and remove from heat, allowing it to fully cool. The sauce will last in the fridge for several days, or you can transfer into Mason jars, and freeze for later use. Enjoy!
