Best ever cranberry sauce

Cranberry sauce is so easy to make- try this very simple recipe!

I would never buy a jar of cranberry sauce from the supermarket as it’s so, so easy to make! It only take 5 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to cook!

Slimming World- this is the Christmas version, when I would make it with sugar- so therefore the syns are quite high- I’m having a go at one made with sweetener soon and will do a taste comparison and share the recipe if it’s good!


My Recipe

Serves: 6-8
Syns: 3-4 per portion
Healthy Extra:


  • 300g fresh cranberries
  • zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 100g brown sugar
  • pinch of salt


  1. Heat up the orange juice, orange zest and sugar together until simmering, to dissolve the sugar
  2. Add in the cranberries, stir well, add in a pinch of salt and cover.
  3. Simmer gently for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally
  4. Allow to cool slightly, and transfer for a jar. Store in fridge.
