Serves 6

Whenever I serve this, people ask for the recipe.  I am sharing it with you because it's the easiest, most delicious cranberry sauce you will ever make.

  • 2 c. fresh cranberries
  • 1 c. fresh squeezed Valencia orange juice
  • 1/3 c. maple syrup (grade B preferred)
  • zest of 1 orange (use your Microplane Zester here for the finest shred)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla, or the contents of ½ a vanilla bean
  • large pinch of Himalayan sea salt




  1. Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan.
  2. Bring to a simmer over medium heat,and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until berries are tender and syrup has developed.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature.
