SCD and Paleo Cranberry Sauce

I don’t know about you, but I grew up on the canned variety of this holiday favorite. I actually never liked it and skipped over the jelly like substance at every Thanksgiving.

Now that I’ve made it homemade and know what I am eating is not full of refined sugar, I’ve grown to love it with my turkey and stuffing! It also tastes delicious smeared on the bread of a moist maker sandwich (sorry for the Friend’s reference!)

Ingredients (serves 6)

1 12 ounce package fresh cranberries
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon orange zest


Mix all of the ingredients together in a saucepan over medium-high heat.  Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the berries begin to break, or for about 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and let it sit until it reaches room temperatures. The sauce will thicken as it cools.

Serve with turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
