Crock Pot Cranberry Sauce

Modified from this recipe at A Year of Slow Cooking.

  • 12 oz. cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar*
  • 1/2 cup sugar*
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • dash grated ginger (optional)
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • Note: I've had success with substituting a sweeter berry, like raspberries, for part of the sugar.
Rinse cranberries. Place all ingredients in crockpot and mix. Cover, cook on high for about 2 hours, or until cranberries are soft enough to "pop" when smooshed with a spoon against the wall of the crockpot. Smoosh all the berries and let simmer for another half hour on low. Let cool. Can be made ahead of time. Makes a nice topping for salads and ice cream or pie.
