Recipe by Elizebett Rocha Bento Eslinger

This recipe may not settle the debate on canned versus homemade cranberry sauce, but it's likely to be a hit at the Thanksgiving table or as a spread on turkey sandwiches. And it's super quick to make! It has a lovely citrus zing, doesn’t require cooking, and stores well in the fridge for up to a week. 


  • 12 oz fresh cranberries
  • zest from 1 medium orange
  • 1 medium orange (washed, peel and pith removed, and cut into chunks)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 dash of salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  2. Scrape into a serving bowl (or a storage container if making ahead). Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
