This recipe is incredibly special to me, because it's a riff off of my mother's recipe. Introducing my Cinnamon Bourbon Cranberry Sauce, aka a delicious, healthy twist on your traditional Cranberry Sauce. My version is refined sugar-free, and only uses 7 ingredients! It's quick, simple, easy, and an absolute staple for your Thanksgiving Day dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Fresh Cranberries (or frozen cranberries)
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Bourbon
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick

Instructions

  • Begin by preparing your cranberries. Rinse and dry them thoroughly. If using frozen cranberries, there is no need to rinse them.
  • Add your cranberries to a large pot and add in the coconut sugar, orange juice, and water. Heat over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Once it's boiling, reduce the heat to low and add in the bourbon, vanilla, and cinnamon stick.
  • Stir everything together well and cook for 20-22 minutes. The cranberry sauce should get nice and thick. If you want it even thicker, you can let it sit for another minute or two.
  • Remove the cinnamon stick and stir.
  • Serve immediately, or put in the fridge until you're ready to eat. Enjoy!
