Servings 8 1/2 cup


  • Stainless Steel Soup Pot
  • Stainless Potato Masher


  • 2 cups cranberries
  • 1 plum chopped
  • 1 orange juice and zest
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger grated


  • Combine all ingredients in a heavy-bottomed soup pot.
  • Simmer at medium-low heat for a half hour until the berries and plum chunks are tender enough to mash. Mash until the sauce is your desired consistency (we usually leave ours a little chunky).
  • If needed, continue to simmer at very low heat to thicken the sauce. The pectins in the fruit will cause the sauce to thicken. The sauce is thick enough when you can draw a spoon along the bottom of the pan and the sauce won’t fill in the space right away.
