This Homemade Cranberry Sauce is made with fresh orange and ginger. It's easy to make and is delicious on turkey sandwiches.



  • 1 package fresh cranberries
  • 3/4  cup  Sugar
  • teaspoons  Fresh ginger
  • 1/2  teaspoon  grated orange peel
  • cup  Fresh orange juice


  1. Rinse the cranberries well. In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, ginger, orange zest and orange juice. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, uncovered until the cranberries pop. Reduce to a low heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir once or twice while simmering. Let cool, then transfer sauce to a dish or server and cover.

  3. The cranberry sauce will keep for a week, stored in a covered container in the refrigerator.
