Year after year you make your favorite Thanksgiving recipes, trying new ways to roast a turkey and finding tasty desserts beyond the typical pumpkin pie. And year after year, there seems to be one dish that remains the same – the cranberry sauce. Even though it's a bright, sweet and tart side dish that pairs well with both mashed potatoes and turkey, this is one dish that rarely gets to steal the show. That is, until you stumbled upon this incredibly delicious and simple-to-make Honey Cranberry Sauce recipe! If there's one side dish that deserves a flavor makeover, it's a flavorful cranberry sauce made with just a handful of simple ingredients, and naturally sweetened with our Organic Pure & Raw Honey.


One 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries, rinsed

1/2 cup Madhava Natural Sweeteners Organic Pure & Raw Honey

1 orange, zested and juiced

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Set a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and add the cranberries, organic honey and water, stirring to combine. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cooking and stirring until cranberries pop and the mixture thickens, about 5-10 minutes.
