This Homemade Cranberry Sauce is easy to make in one pot with cranberries, fresh citrus, cinnamon and nutmeg. Takes just 15 minutes to make in one pot. Naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and perfect for Thanksgiving or your next Christmas holiday gathering. Gluten-free, vegan and paleo-friendly.
In a medium saucepan combine cranberries, water, orange juice, coconut sugar, maple syrup, orange zest and cinnamon.
Turn the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low.
Let the mixture cook and simmer for 10-13 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of the cranberries have burst and the sauce has reduced slightly. Taste and add more sweetener, as desired.
Allow the mixture to cool for about 10 minutes then transfer to a bowl to cool completely. Serve or store (covered with a lid or plastic wrap), in the refrigerator until ready. Bring to room temperature before serving.
