David's Cranberry Sauce

My husband, David, is a pretty great cook in his own right, and Thanksgiving is one of his favorite holidays. Along with several other delicious dishes, he's famous in our family and a few others for his amazing cranberry sauce—and he’s allowed me to share it with you!

By David Samson

Serves 4

Ingredients
8 ounces fresh cranberries
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup coconut sugar
3 whole cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 whole bay leaf
zest of one orange
Pinch sea salt

Directions
1. Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

2. Reduce heat to low and cook until cranberries have popped and liquid has reduced to desired thickness (1-2 hours).

3. Remove cinnamon sticks and bay leaf. Serve warm or chilled.

Pro-tip

  • Not just for Thanksgiving, this sweet, crimson sauce makes an equally incredible ice cream sundae topping as it does a jam stand-in!
