Organic Cranberry Sauce for Your Holiday Dinner

Organic_Cranberry_SauceBy Ali Wetherbee

Nourishing World’s owner, Kerrie, made this cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving dinner and her family loved it! Cranberries are one of the top sources of antioxidants, and are also rich in detoxifying compounds. Be sure to choose organic cranberries since conventional varieties have a high pesticide load. The gelatin from grass-fed cows makes the sauce nice and thick, plus adds a nutritional boost. This is a great addition to your holiday dinner menu!


12 oz organic cranberries
11 oz can of Mandarin oranges, reserve liquid
juice from the 11oz can of Mandarins plus enough cherry juice to equal 1 cup
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1/2 tsp stevia powder
zest from 1 clementine
1/2 tbsp Great Lakes Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin


Combine cranberries and juice in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes or until cranberries are all popped. Remove from heat.  Add remaining ingredients, stir well, and refrigerate until needed.
