Cranberry Carols | A Sugarless Sauce


Stovetops sing, are you listening?

In our homes, food is glistening…

A beautiful sight,

We’re happy tonight,

Feasting in a winter wonderland! 

I’ve been shamelessly singing Christmas carols since summertime, but ‘TIS THE SEASON, my dear joy-givers!

Bright lights are magically appearing everywhere (elves, perhaps?) and even the skies are dressing up extra-festive in brilliant crimson and gold. And you know what that means… it’s time to cook up some Christmas cheer!

This healthy homemade cranberry sauce is rosy as Rudolph’s nose and as sweet as Santa’s smile. I’ve been using it in pies and wraps and stir-fried with my veggies (I know it sounds weird but it’s seriously delish… recipes coming soon!!) but here’s the super-simple star of the show!

Wishing you very, very merry almost-Christmas days!



  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 4 oranges
  • 16 dates (minced)
  • ½“ ginger (minced)


Cut oranges in half and squeeze juice into saucepan. Toss all ingredients in and cook on medium-high until desired consistency, approx. 12-15 minutes. Listen to the cranberries pop, pop, pop and sing along!

Yes, it’s really this easy! Happy carolling! 😀

**Update: For a fabulous cranberry muffin, head over to Bam’s Kitchen for a tasty treat! I love her creativity!

  2. My wife actually made this for our Thanksgiving this year. A delightful change. If you have an ice cream maker I am going to post a D-lish holiday ice cream in a few days. Have a great weekend Ms Sufey!

  3. AWESOME!!! I am aligning with my desires. Yipeeee. I bought cranberries some days ago….today I bought some fresh somewhat local oranges….and here I am absorbing the Universe once again. Thanks for contributing to my PIL (Perfect Imagined Life). MERRY CHRISTMAS
