EASY CRANBERRY CLEMENTINE SAUCE

Let&rsquos make the easiest and tastiest 15-minute cranberry sauce EVER! You can make it up to three days in advance too.

This Easy Cranberry Clementine Sauce post and photos were updated in November of 2019.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and therefore deserves some RESPECT!! When I think of Thanksgiving, I feel no pressure. It&rsquos ALL. ABOUT. FOOD. And food, I can do.

Cranberry sauce is literally the EASIEST dish you can make, yet is often overlooked as something that should be made from scratch. It takes around 10-15 minutes from start to finish, and most of that time is spent simmering.

Sure, you can buy it from a can, but once you try the homemade version, you will NEVER go back to store-bought! I love this sauce so much, that even if I&rsquom not hosting dinner I make sure to bring some just in case the home I&rsquom going to decides to take a shortcut with the canned version.

I normally make mine with whatever oranges are available, but this year I decided to try clementines because of their burst of citrus goodness. If you can&rsquot find clementines, just sub with whatever type of oranges look and smell fresh.

Don&rsquot use canned orange juice because the zest is what takes this cranberry sauce to new heights!! This cranberry sauce can be made up to three days in advance and stored in the fridge.

How to make this Clementine Cranberry Sauce

Start by zesting two clementines and set aside the zest. Juice four clementines and add it to a saucepan with water and sugar over medium heat. Heat until the sugar is dissolved and add the cranberries.

Simmer the cranberries for about 8-10 minutes until all the berries have burst open.

Add the zest off the heat and stir to combine. Let cool and place in a covered container in the fridge for up to three days in advance (really this will last much longer because the sugar acts as a preservative).
