If you’ve ever wanted to make your own cranberry sauce from scratch, now is the time! This is honestly one of the easiest recipes in the world, and can be made with a variety of sweeteners and optional ingredients like herbs or citrus. Check it out:
1- 12 oz. Bag of Cranberries
1/2 Cup Water
Your Favorite Vegan Sweetener*
1 Sprig of Fresh Rosemary
1 Sprig of Fresh Thyme
Directions: Tie the rosemary and thyme together with a bit of pure cotton twine or string. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium/high heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. The berries will begin to burst and create a jam. Stir often for about 15 minutes, and sweeten to taste. Cool and store in the fridge. Sauce will last for weeks!
*Popular vegan sweeteners include agave nectar, demerara sugar and maple syrup. Regular white and brown sugar is sometimes processed using non-vegan methods. See a list of vegan friendly sugar companies here.
