Homemade Orange Cider Cranberry Sauce Recipe - an easy Thanksgiving side dish that you can make ahead! SnappyGourmet.com

Let’s talk about this homemade cranberry sauce recipe for a minute. It’s super easy to make and not much to say about it. Only 5 ingredients, and you can actually mix it up and substitute other ingredients for a whole new flavor. I used apple cider and orange juice but you could use your favorite fruit juice or even water. I also used brown sugar but you could use a sugar substitute or granulated sugar or even honey or maple syrup. I didn’t use as much sugar as most recipes call for, but feel free to add in more. I used an immersion blender for a slightly smoother cranberry sauce but you can leave it chunky for more of a whole cranberry sauce.

Hope you enjoy this homemade cranberry sauce recipe!
