Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, Wild Oats, now Whole Foods, shared this recipe in their bi-weekly circular.
Serves: 2 cups
  • 1 (12 oz.) bag fresh cranberries (about 4 cups)
  • ¾ c. water
  • ⅔ c. sugar or ⅓ c. agave nectar
  • Juice and zest from one orange
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves
  • ½ tsp. ground allspice
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg, freshly grated
  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil.
  2. Add cranberries, orange juice and spices.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes, until cranberries burst and cook down into a sauce.
  4. Stir in orange zest and remove from heat.
  5. Serve warm or cool to room temperature and chill before serving. (The sauce will thicken up as it cools.)
