I love the warm tones the honey and spices give this wonderful sauce from Gourmet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cranberries have burst and the mixture has thickened. (I put the cloves in a tea diffuser for easier removal and usually cook the sauce a little longer than the time given.).
  2. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and let cool.
  3. The sauce may be made 2 days in advance and kept covered and chilled.
  4. Serve at room temperature.

Delicious! I used strawberry organe banana juice (bc that's what was in the fridge). Substituted 1 tsp of ground cinnamon for the sticks. Perfect blend of sweet and spice. Easiest recipe ever! Thanks for sharing!

I've made this a few time now and it always turns out great! I've made it using orange juice and water and both are good. Great recipe!

I made this for Thanksgiving 2009 and got more compliments on it than, I think, anything else I've ever made. In turn, I was required to bring it for the Christmas meal as well. I love cranberry sauce and this was the best I've ever had. Thanks for sharing!!!
