  • About


  • 4 cups cranberries
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water or ½ cup water and ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • finely grated rind of 1 orange
  • 2 cups sugar (half may be white and half brown)


    1. Wash and pick over the cranberries, removing any soft berries. For a smoother sauce, chop the cranberries in a blender or food processor before cooking.
    2. Combine all the ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil, stirring. Cook at a low boil, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
    3. Add the sugar, return to a low boil, and cook until thick, stirring often. Seal in sterile jars.
