Easy Homemade Cranberry Sauce Made With Honey

You have got to try this easy homemade cranberry sauce made with honey! As long as I can remember, cranberry sauce meant that purple stuff that slides out of the can in one big piece. If you’re used to buying this from the grocery store for your Thanksgiving dinner, you should know that the ingredients in the most popular brand are: Cranberries, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Water, and Corn Syrup. Yes, twice. That’s a whole heck of a lot of corn syrup and GMOs. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Cranberries have natural pectin so there is no need to add any kind of pectin or gelatin to this recipe. It will firm up and gel naturally provided you do not overcook it. Overcooking it will break down the natural pectin so it doesn’t gel.

  1. Growing up you couldn't pay me to try more than a taste on the tip of my tongue. I hated cranberry sauce, but every Thanksgiving I dried just a tad. Well, it's true that your tastes change over the years because now it is one of my favorite things. I'm going to have to try this recipe this year, thanks.
  2. It never occurred to me to use honey in place of white sugar. I love homemade cranberry relish or sauce with my turkey any time of year. Do you think it would break down the pectin if I also added crushed walnuts and chopped apples like I do from my recipe? I love it a bit crunchy, but like the idea of honey instead of al the white sugar.
  3. I've never made homemade cranberry sauce before but I am going to this year and every year on I'm sure! I really like how their is no extra ingredients.
  4. Can you put it in jars, hot water bath and preserve it like jam?
