Meme Q’s Cranberry Sauce

Posted on: October 7, 2012

Meme Q was the one to bring the cranberry sauce to our Christmas dinner every year! It was always just a smidge different from anybody else’s and finally one day she shared her secret with my Mom! The difference is orange juice! Here’s how you do it!


  • 12 oz package of fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup of sugar ( I sub with agave, you do as you like!)


  1. Bring the sugar and juice to a boil.
  2. Add in the rinsed berries. bring to a boil.
  3. Cook till the skins start to burst. Let cool.
  4. Serve warm or chilled with turkey or chicken or even pork!

Very nice… I’d like to try the agave sometime. Haven’t seen it in our stores yet.

I use it as a substitute for sugar most times. It works just as well as sugar and a bit better for you! where are you at? I’ve seen it in Canada, Mexico and the USA.

Far Northern Canada … our fresh food comes via air freight. Choices are a bit limited 😦

wow, sorry to hear that! I forget how lucky we are to just go in a supermarket and get whatever I need or want!
