This is the BEST cranberry sauce recipe, it’s my go-to every year. More favorite Thanksgiving sides include Garlic Mashed potatoes and Roasted Heirloom Carrots with Feta, Truffle and Lemon.

Cranberry sauce can be served chilled or at room temperature. I just love how fruit spreads can be such a lovely compliment to a meal. I especially love it with turkey or on a roasted turkey breast sandwich. The day after Thanksgiving, if there’s leftover turkey, I’ll slice it and out it on a whole wheat baguette with some broccoli sprouts – delicious. It’s also great with a pork roast or roasted chicken. Other favorites are Crock Pot Applesauce, Slow Cooker Cranberry Pear Butter, Slow Cooker Apple Butter, and Pumpkin Butter.

Make it a few days ahead, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

  1. This sounds great!  What type of pears do you recommend?  And have you ever tried adding uncrystallized candied ginger?    How far in advance can it be made and still be as good as fresh?  
    Thanks for your help

  2. For anyone wondering, I don’t recommend using canned pears. It just doesn’t look as good. I made this recipe for Friendsgiving and made one sauce with fresh pairs and another with canned. My friend’s didn’t think the canned pears tasted that bad, but the fresh pears were definitely more appetizing 

  3. This is my go to cranberry sauce. It’s always a hit with the family. It tastes great on yogurt too.

  4. I was going to make the recipe on the back of bag of cranberries until I saw that it called for a cup of sugar.  This recipe came across my Instagram so I tried it instead. YUM! From now on this will be on my Thanksgiving table!

  5. Can I use fresh cranberries??
