Cranberry Sauce Recipe


Preserving Method: Water Bath Canning

  1. PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil.  Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  2. COMBINE sugar and water in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil hard for 5 minutes. Add cranberries and return mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and boil gently, stirring occasionally, until all berries burst and liquid begins to sheet from a metal spoon, about 15 minutes. Stir in orange zest, if using, during the last few minutes of cooking.
  3. LADLE hot cranberry sauce into hot jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot cranberry sauce. Wipe rim. Center lid on jar. Apply band until fit is fingertip tight.  Place jar in boiling water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.
  4. PROCESS jars in a boiling water canner for 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this recipe My family has had store boughten since I found this. I was wondering if anyone has tried raspberry purée as one cup of liquid. I remember my Mom buying a Cran-raspberry sauce many many moons ago....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Port wine spiced cranberry sauce I make two versions of this sauce. One is as described. In the Port spiced version, I substitute one cup of port as the liquid. I add several partial sticks of cinnamon (one for each jar) and one star anise (one for each jar) and when decanting, I put one of each cinnamon stick and star anise into each jar, and then process per the directions. After sitting for a few weeks to let the flavors meld, I serve. It is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cranberry Sauce Recipe I used that recipe, except I also use the orange juice to replace some of the water. I use 1 orange per 4 cups of cranberries. It's wonderful with turkey and also as jam on toast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Cranberry Sauce I'm having a turkey dinner for Christmas this year since we only had a turkey breast at Thanksgiving. The recipe was so simple to use and make. I didn't have an orange and so I just made the standard sauce. When it was nearing the end of the cooking process I used my emulsifier to puree the berries. I got 4 1/2 pints out of the recipe and I put the little 1/2 pint jar in the fridge. Its so darn tasty and I can't wait to serve it to my family this Christmas. The picture is what my sauce looks like after being in the fridge for a couple hours. I was curious to see how thick it would be....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from auto canned? Are there any directions to use the auto canner with this? I used the auto canner on jam/jelly and used 1. This seemed pretty close to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver! I'd never thought of canning cranberry sauce - how great to be able to have it on hand! But, I always use a more "diabetic friendly" sweetener - at the moment xylitol, or agave. Would it be safe to use one of these?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful I read the reviews about this recipe and I'm glad I did. Instead of using 4 cups water I used 2 cups water and 2 cups orange juice AND the sauce is wonderful. Next time I will try 3 cups orange juice and go up to 4 if I like it? I'm glad I tried the juice like one of the other reviewers did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Delicious This was my first attempt at canning anything other than peppers, and it turned out great. This recipe is simple and easy to follow. The only change I made was using 2 cups of fresh squeezed orange juice and 2 cups of water instead of just 4 cups of water. The orange juice gave the sauce a nice sweetness. I ended up with a bit more sauce than expected and was able to fill 10 half pint jars with this recipe.
