RECIPE: My Favorite Cranberry Sauce

Posted by annova914 (My Page) on

My MIL found this in her local newspaper where it was called "Cranberry Salad" and its source was the Farmers Almanac. It isn't a salad so I've just renamed it Cranberry Sauce and love it.

Cranberry Sauce

1-1/2 cups water
1 bag of cranberries

Bring water to a boil. Add cranberries and simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until berries pop.


2 cups sugar
1 cup crushed pineapple
1 seeded orange, separated and chopped
2 Tbsps grated orange rind
cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


Simmer mixture for 20 minutes. Let cool. Add cup walnuts. Makes 5 cups.

Source: Farmers Almanac

My note: I drain the crushed pineapple in a sieve. Also, after zesting, I find it easier to cut thick slices of the orange, then cut off the peel and cut out the sections of the orange. Sometimes I cut back a little on the sugar.

RE: RECIPE: My Favorite Cranberry Sauce

Instead of using just plain water to cook the whole cranberries, I use orange juice (concentrate diluted) or cranberry juice.

Here's my favorite.
Cranberry jezabel
12 oz bag fresh or frozen cranberries
1 c. water
3/4 c. white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
Wash and pick over the berries, put water and sugars in sauce pan( large
enough to prevent boil over) and bring to a boil, add berries and return to
a boil, cook on medium for 15 to 20 minutes from the time it returns to a
boil, stirring occasionally. Cool to luke warm and add 3 T. fresh (fresh is
hotter!) horseradish and 1T Dijon mustard, stir, refrigerate and enjoy!

RE: RECIPE: My Favorite Cranberry Sauce

Hi Linda - love Jezebel sauce to begin with so I have a question about the horseradish. Can I use the bottled plain horseradish w/o ruining the recipe? Ann

RE: RECIPE: My Favorite Cranberry Sauce

Yep...but buy new....if it has been in the refrig for a while it loses "hot"...

RE: RECIPE: My Favorite Cranberry Sauce

This is my favorite, I usually make half a recipe since I'm the only one here that eats cranberries! Just made it again today.
