Homemade Cranberry Orange Sauce
Note: This recipe is simple to make, a hit at any holiday party, and super healthy! Very kid
friendly as well! If you don’t have honey you can use maple syrup as the sweetener or you
can use a ½-1 Cup of sugar. I also did not have nutmeg separate so I used a Pumpkin pie
spice that I had and turned out amazing!
2 (12oz) packages fresh cranberries
1 Cup of Freshly squeezed Orange Juice
1 Cup of honey (light colored if you have it)
½ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 tbsp of unflavored gelatin packet

Once most of the berries have popped open pour in the bloomed gelatin and whisk until
