Maple Cranberry Sauce!

We are fortunate enough to live near a beautiful bog that we love to explore in every season. In the fall you can find wild cranberries there (see our pictures below). When I find food in the wild, it generates a similar feeling in me as when I grow my own food. It inspires me to put so much more care and attention into each dish I create. 

I love recipes that are easy, healthy and delicious, and still contain a little something extra that makes them feel special. This recipe is all of those things. It includes so few ingredients, but they compliment each other so perfectly, a bit tart and and a bit sweet.

I hope this will become a fall favorite for your family! 

Maple Cranberry Sauce

Maple Cranberry Sauce

Pottery by Karaku

Makes about 2 cups. Recipe can be halved.


  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 heaping cups cranberries (or ~1 lb)
  • 1 orange
  • seasonal spices - such as 1&1/2 tsp cinnamon (or one stick), 1/2 tsp nutmeg, pinch of cloves


  1. Wash cranberries and remove any debris, add to a small pan.
  2. Add water and maple syrup into the small pan. Add in the juice of one orange. Add any of your favorite seasonal spices, and stir to incorporate.
  3. Add cranberries.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat, simmer until most cranberries have popped and the sauce starts to thicken (8-12 min).
  6. Sauce will thicken up as it cools.


Pour water then maple syrup right into the measuring cup together, making sure the total is 1.5 cups. This leaves a little less maple syrup to lick out of measuring cup.

Periodically scrape down the top edges of the sauce so it doesn't scorch around the edge.
