This cranberry sauce is part of my recipe for Sweet Orange Ricotta With Cranberry Compote, but because it also serves as such a deliciously simple Thanksgiving cranberry sauce, I figured it deserves its own post. Made from just four ingredients – fresh cranberries and orange juice, maple syrup, sugar – this gorgeous sauce takes just 15 minutes to prepare (plus chill time).
Vegan Cranberry Sauce
- 1 large orange
- 12 ounces fresh cranberries
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- Place a 2-inch slice of orange peel and the juice from the orange in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add the cranberries, maple syrup, and sugar, and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer until cranberries burst and the liquid thickens, about 10 minutes. Chill completely (this process can be sped up with an ice bath).
