One of the best things about Thanksgiving is homemade cranberry sauce. This version has a twist that makes it extra special.


Fiber helps feed your git microbiome


  • 1 12 oz. bag fresh or frozen cranberries
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • Zest of 1 medium orange
  • Juice of 1 medium orange
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Place the cranberries in a colander and rinse with cold water. Discard any shriveled or damaged berries.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, maple syrup, orange zest, orange juice, and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then lower the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have broken down and thickened into a compote, about 20 minutes. The cranberries should pop. 
  3. Remove the cranberry sauce from the heat and stir in the cinnamon. Let cool completely at room temperature, then transfer to a bowl to chill in the refrigerator. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
