Holiday Recipe: Cranberry Sauce

One of my favourite things about Thanksgiving or Christmas, is the food.  And this year, since going Paleo, I’ve had to reinvent and rediscover old favourites.  Here is cranberry sauce, revised.


  • 4 cups fresh (or frozen) cranberries
  • 1 organic orange
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey (or less, to taste)

Wash and sort the cranberries. Grate the orange peel.  Combine in pot.  Add the juice of the orange and the water.  Also add half of the honey.  Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer for 10 minutes.  Taste and add more honey if necessary.  Cook until all the cranberries have popped.

Optional, non-Paleo addition: add a splash of brandy, while sauce is simmering.  All the alcohol will evaporate but the taste remains.  Yum!

Happy eating!
