Cranberry Orange Sauce

More than of recipe, this is a launching point for cranberry sauce.

And not just for Thanksgiving.  In the Good Mood Red Foods category, cranberries are rich in flavonoids which can help improve memory and brain function.

This sauce can be used so  many ways. Here are a couple of ideas:

  • Add to a bowl of oatmeal — or quinoa porridge mhhmmm so seasonally delicious
  • Mix into plain Greek yogurt with granola for breakfast or dessert
  • Top pancakes or waffles as an alternate to syrup.
  • Mix into Greek yogurt or cream cheese and make pancake (waffle or muffin) “sammies” (sanwiches) for breakfast on the go or an afternoon snack.
  • Use it on crostini or crackers for an appetizer: spread soft goat cheese (or cream cheese), top with cranberry orange sauce and chopped chives or green onion.


  • Rather than orange zest, use lemon or lime zest
  • And add 1 – 2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
