Cranberry Sauce Recipes with Fruit

Cranberry-Grapefruit Conserve

Cranberry-Grapefruit Conserve

“It’s so easy to make your own cranberry sauce, why wouldn’t you?” Boston chef Barbara Lynch says of this bitter-tart conserve, which she also jars and gives as a gift.

Jellied Cranberry Sauce with Fuji Apple

While this cranberry sauce may remind some of a canned version, it’s healthy and homemade. The addition of Fuji Apples to the sauce provides pectin, a natural gelling agent.

Cranberry and Dried Fruit Compote

This cranberry compote gets depth and texture from dried figs, cherries and raisins.

Cranberry, Quince and Pear Chutney

Verjus (the juice of unripe grapes), brandy, pears and quince add complexity to this chutney.

Cranberry-Pomegranate Sauce

In this sauce, pomegranate juice adds sweet-tart freshness while pomegranate seeds offer a great pop in the mouth.

Tangerine Cranberry Sauce

Following the advice of their mother, Sarah Harris, that tart is always better than sweet, Bruce and Eric Bromberg developed this tangy sauce to balance the sweet dishes normally served at Thanksgiving. The sugared tangerines need to stand overnight; so plan accordingly.

Spiked and Spiced Cranberry Sauce Recipes

Marcia Kiesel gives this sauce crunch and flavor by adding pumpkin seeds roasted with cumin and paprika.

Instant Spiced Apple Cider-Cranberry Sauce

Apple cider, cinnamon and ground cloves give this cranberry sauce a distinctly fall flavor.

Port-Cranberry Sauce

Reduced Ruby Port adds richness and depth to this fast and easy sauce.

Cranberries with Orange Zest and Port

Chefs Edna Lewis and Scott Peacock find a real affinity between the flavors of cranberry and port. The unusual way of cooking the berries in this cranberry orange sauce renders them perfectly done but not mushy, resulting in a relish that is as beautiful as it is delicious.
