  • 1 12oz bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 13oz jar orange marmalade
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ c water
  • ¼ c sugar
  • 2 tbsp orange juice


  • Place all of the ingredients, except the orange juice, in a small sauce pot. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes stirring often to avoid scorching. Simmer the sauce until cranberries burst and the juices are syrupy. Turn off the heat, stir in the orange juice.
  • Remove the pot from heat. Let cool completely at room temperature, then transfer to a bowl to chill in the refrigerator.


Storing and Serving: Cranberry sauce will stay fresh for up to a week in the refrigerator. Serve cold or room temperature.
