Home is not a place, it’s a feeling…
With Thanksgiving just around the bend, Social Media is thriving with posts of mouthwatering, healthy, organic alternatives to the traditional Thanksgiving feast. While my Dad still treats himself to jellied cranberry sauce in a can and a delectable (his precise word choice) turkey dinner at least once a week, the good news is that the standard, tried and true Thanksgiving menu has evolved. What we once knew as wiggly, jiggly cranberry sauce has transformed into a true cranberry burst of flavor. One of the best (and easiest) recipes we’ve found is Wellness Mama’s Healthy Cranberry Sauce Recipe!

A homemade alternative to store bought cranberry sauce with delicious hints of pineapple and orange to complement the flavor!
2 bags of fresh, organic cranberries (they are usually 12 ounce bags, so about 24 ounces)
3/4 cup organic pineapple juice or orange juice (I recommend pineapple!)
1/2 cup of organic applesauce (no sugar added)
1/2 cup of water
Juice and zest of one organic orange
3-4 Tablespoons of organic honey or to taste (optional)
- Put cranberries, pineapple juice, applesauce and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Keep on medium heat, stirring constantly until the cranberries start to explode (about 10-15 minutes).
- Reduce to a simmer and pour the juice and zest over the cranberry mixture.
- Simmer 10-15 minutes and remove from heat.
- Cool completely and store in fridge at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight before serving.
NOTE: This is not as sweet as store versions! Taste at the end of cooking. It is naturally sweet from the fruit juice and applesauce, but you can add more honey or stevia to taste if needed.
We hope this recipe makes your Thanksgiving a little bit sweeter! As we are big on recycling, here at Organyc, we suggest you use your leftover turkey, together with some pancetta, peas and a light cream sauce to create a delicious turkey pasta dish the day after Thanksgiving!
