Killer Cranberry Sauce

If you’re looking for a cranberry sauce that’s nothing like the one made with the recipe on the back of the bag of cranberries, you’re in the right place.  This recipe calls for a slew of fresh ingredients that make it unique and delicious.  In addition to the cranberries, it’s got Golden Delicious apples, raisins, slivered almonds, cinnamon, fresh ginger, orange zest, and apple juice.

I like to use pasteurized apple juice which can be found in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.  It tastes so much fresher than regular canned or bottled apple juice.

Killer Cranberry Sauce makes a perfect accompaniment for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!

  1. Laura,

    Just wanted to say Thank You for sharing this AMAZING dish! I served it for Christmas and it was a huge hit. Many people wanted the recipe 🙂


  2. Your welcome, Dede. I’m glad everybody enjoyed it.

  3. Hi. I have a question for you. I can’t wait to try this recipe. What can I use in place of orange zest? I am sensitive to oranges because of stomach issues. But I LOVE THE FLAVOR. Also can I make it a few days or even a week earlier to let the flavors grow. (Only word I can think of.) Also can I freeze it for a period of time. I am so EXCITED to try this recipe and the different flavors. Thank you.

  4. Jo-Ann, if you are sensitive to oranges, I would just leave out the orange zest. I can’t really think of anything to replace it with. I’m sure it’s fine to prepare the cranberry sauce a few days in advance. I think I prepared it a day or two in advance the last time I served it, and I also know that I froze the leftovers, so that works, too. Thanks for your comment!
