Ingredients

  • 1 cup honey 250 mL
  • 1/2 cup apple juice 125 mL
  • 1 pkg Compliments Cranberries (frozen) 600 g
  • 1 cinnamon stick (optional)
  • 1 small sprig rosemary (optional)

Directions

  • Step 1

    Combine honey and apple juice in saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in cranberries. Add cinnamon stick and rosemary, if using. Bring back to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 15 to 20 min. until cranberries pop and mixture thickens. Taste for sweetness, adjusting with more honey, if preferred.

Tip

For extra thickening, mix 1 tsp (5 mL) cornstarch with 2 tbsp (30 mL) cold water until smooth; whisk into simmering sauce.

Add a few slices of fresh ginger during cooking for a spicy kick.
