This recipe is the one my Aunt used to make and we love it. We do add a bit of cinnamon but you dont have to.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag cranberries, rinsed and picked through
  • 12-1 cup orange juice
  • 12 teaspoon fresh orange zest
  • 34-1 cup sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained or 1 (8 ounce) can juice, to complement orange juice (just watch your sugar if you do)
  • cinnamon (optional)


  1. In a medium saucepan combine the cranberries and 1/2 cup orange juice.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often.
  3. You will want most if not all of the berries popped.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes more.
  5. Taste and adjust sugar if needed.
  6. Add a little cinnamon if you like.

Yum! This was easy to make and so much better than the stuff from a can. I loved the addition of pineapple. Thanks for posting this recipe, it was a great addition to our Thanks giving dinner :)
