Growing up, we always had cranberry
sauce sliced straight from a can. Staying true to my picky kid roots, I never

and adds a nice flavor to the tart sauce. This is nearly as easy as opening a
can, but way more impressive!
Maple Cranberry Sauce
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
● 12 ounces fresh cranberries
● 1 cup orange juice
● 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
● 1/2 cup sugar
● 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Add all of the ingredients to a medium sauce pan and stir to combine.
Heat over medium heat until the
mixture reaches a rolling boil, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to low and continue
cooking until the berries have burst and the syrup has thickened a bit, about
10 more minutes.
Remove mixture from heat and allow to cool. Sauce will thicken as it
