This cranberry sauce recipe is a perfect solution for people who like the texture of whole berry cranberry sauce but who find biting into a whole, tangy cranberry to be a little too much. The blueberries also give the recipe additional antioxidant power.

Ingredients

  • 12 Ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 Cup orange juice
  • 3/4 Cups organic sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 Ounces fresh blueberries

Directions

Rinse and drain the cranberries and set them aside. 

Next, bring the orange jucie and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add the cranberries, reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for about 10 minutes, until the cranberries have burst and the sauce has slightly thickened.

Stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg, and remove the mixture from the heat. Add the blueberries and stir them in, smashing a few as you go. Transfer the sauce to a serving dish and allow it to cool before serving.

Blueberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Blueberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
