Red Wine and Citrus Spiced Cranberry Sauce

with Simply Organic spices


We go cranberry picking in wild bogs near our home in Amagansett each Fall. As soon as we get home, we freeze the cranberries and use them throughout the long winter in this cranberry sauce, in chutney and in cranberry orange scones. Flavored with Simply Organic spices, this sweet, tart & warmly spiced cranberry sauce is sure to become a new holiday favorite! 



1 12 oz package fresh cranberries (about 3 cups)

1 apple, chopped

¾ cups red wine

½ cup sugar

¼ cup maple syrup

½ tbsp freshly grated ginger

½ tsp salt

Juice & zest of one lemon

Juice & zest of one orange

¾ tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

Pinch ground cardamom

Pinch ground cloves

Pinch allspice

Pinch black pepper



Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, mashing the cranberries with the back of a fork as they cook.


Let cool for about 15 minutes, then check for seasoning, adding more salt, pepper or maple syrup as needed. Store in a airtight jar for up to three days before serving.
