Cranberry Sauce with a Kick


I love homemade cranberry sauce, and rather than go the traditional route, we opted to make a cranberry sauce with a kick. It was delicious, and our 2 year old loved it!


  • 1 bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. liquid (juice one orange and add enough water to make 1 c.)
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 serrano, membranes and seeds removed


  1. Zest the orange and mince the serrano.
    Juice the orange and add water so there’s 1 c. of liquid.
  2. Bring liquid and sugar to a boil. When it comes to a boil add cranberries. Bring back to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes. Add the zest and the serrano.
  3. Transfer sauce to a covered dish and allow to cool at room temperature, then refrigerate.
