Servings 4


  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 2 tsp Grated orange peel
  • Pinch salt


  • Place cranberries, pomegranate juice and grated ginger into a small saucepan. Grate orange peel over the pan and add the pinch of salt.
  • Place the lid on the saucepan and heat over medium high until the cranberry mixture is bubbling. Cook for 8 minutes.
  • After 4 minutes, mash cranberries with a potato masher or fork to smash them down. Continuing cooking with the lid off for another 4 minutes. Sauce will start to thicken.
  • Once the mixture becomes a runny jam-like consistency, remove from heat.
  • You can serve it right away, warm or it will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days in an air-tight container.


This recipe makes about 3/4 cup of sauce. Double all ingredients if you need lots.
