Time to put away the canned stuff because I’m going to prove to you how easy it is to make your own cranberry sauce! It takes about 5 minutes to make and your turkey we’ll be more than happy to share the spotlight with this delicious sauce!

I usually make mine 1 hour before my turkey is ready, that way, I can use some of the turkey broth that’s in the oven 🙂


1 package of fresh cranberries or a box of frozen cranberries (about 2 cups)

2 green shallots (chopped)

1 tablespoon of butter

1 branch of Rosemary

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 cup of white sugar (or more, it’s as you wish really…)

2 tablespoons of orange juice

1/4 cup of turkey broth (basically the good juice that’s lying in the bottom of the roasting pan)

salt & pepper


On low heat add the shallots and the rosemary to the butter. Cook for 1 minute. Add all the other ingredients. Cook for about 5-7 minutes. Your cranberries will burst open and the sauce will become thicker and look like a jam. Once it’s to your liking, reserve.

Let cool before serving
