  • 1 (12 ounce) bag cranberries
  • cup sugar
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 orange zested and juiced
  • 3 whole star anise
  • 2 cinnamon sticks


  • Place all ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir.
  • Once mixture has come to a boil, turn heat down to medium-low and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cranberries have cooked down and the sauce has thickened. Stir frequently.
  • Remove from heat and allow the cranberry sauce to cool. The sauce will thicken more as it cools. Serve as a condiment with your favorite thanksgiving dish.


  • *Makes 1½ to 2 cups
