raw cranberry sauce
1 cup apple juice (freshly squeezed)
1 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed)
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ cup agave
1 tbsp grated orange zest
1 cup cranberries, whole
1/2 cup cranberries, halved
1 cup pecans or walnuts (or a mix), chopped
1 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp orange zest
First, blend together the apple and orange juices, the cinnamon, the
nutmeg, the allspice, the cloves, and the whole cranberries. When
mixture is thick, taste for sweetness and adjust as you like.
At this point, you can simply serve the sauce as is! It’s delicious. Keep in mind, though, that this is very much a sauce – it’ll be smooth and gravy-like in texture.
For a more textured cranberry sauce (in
addition to the regular sauce), simply separate out one cup of the
mixture. To this, add the half cup of halved cranberries, the chopped
nuts, and the dried cranberries. Grate in the additional teaspoon orange
zest. Let it soak overnight, until the cranberries sweeten and soften
up. Top with additional cranberries and zest, and enjoy!
