Thow everything in the crockpot and walk away for 3 hours, it’s so easy!! This way you can eat fruit in a fun way! This cranberry sauce turns into a nice thick sauce for the holidays. Great for making the day before or day of. Heck, you could just transport the whole crockpot bowl once it’s done cooking.
Serves 10 (1/4 each)
Quantity: 2 1/2 cups
12 oz package fresh cranberries
1 orange, juiced and zested
1 tsp ground ginger (or fresh ginger)
3/4 cup hot water
Blend the dates and hot water in a blender till chunky or smooth. If you don’t want to or can’t do this, chop up the dates in small pieces and soak them in the hot water to soften them. Add the cranberries, orange, ginger, dates and water (or date/water paste) to the crockpot. Turn on LOW for about 3 hours. When this is done, smash the cranberries with a spoon against the side of the crockpot so they burst. As the cranberry sauce cools, it will thicken up. This sauce is great hot or cold!
