Jellied Cranberry Sauce Made With Whole, Fresh Cranberries
Hi. It’s Lois, telling you about Don’s Jellied Cranberry Sauce. This Cranberry Sauce is a must at our Thanksgiving table. The recipe is a variation of the one from the Ocean Spray cranberry bag. We usually buy two bags of Organic Frozen Whole Cranberries before Thanksgiving and freeze one to save it for Christmas.
For a variation, sometimes Don adds cinnamon and the zest from an orange to the cranberries. That’s my favorite way to eat it so the recipe includes these ingredients. If you don’t want that extra flavor, just leave these two items out.
Jellied Cranberry Sauce is a tasty complement to turkey, chicken, Cornish game hens and other birds. It also goes well with pork. It is best if you make this Jellied Cranberry Sauce the day before you want to serve it. That way, you can make sure it sets up and is nice and cold.
In our home we chill the cranberries in a beautiful dish and serve it by passing it around the table with an antique serving spoon.

Homemade Jellied Cranberry Sauce Recipe Made with Whole Cranberries
Jellied Cranberry Sauce
The best Homemade Jellied Cranberry Sauce you're ever gonna eat made with whole, fresh cranberries. Never buy canned again! 30-minute recipe.
- 1 pound Organic Frozen Whole Cranberries (can be purchased fresh and frozen until needed)
- 2 C water
- 2 C sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- zest of 1 orange
- Place the water and sugar in a large heavy-bottom sauce pan.
- Bring it to a boil.
- Add the cinnamon sticks, orange zest and cranberries.
- Simmer for about 20 minutes until all the cranberry skins have “popped” and the berries feel soft.
- For whole cranberry sauce, remove the cinnamon sticks, pour the cranberries into a bowl or mold and refrigerate until firm (4 to 5 hours).
For jellied cranberries (without whole cranberries) remove the cinnamon sticks and press through a foley food mill to remove the seeds and skin. Takes about 10 minutes.
- Then pour the mixture into a bowl or mold and chill until firm (4 to 5 hours).
- Keep refrigerated.
If you have chilled it in a mold, warm the mold in a bowl of water to release the cranberry jelly. Place a serving plate on top of the mold and turn it over so the cranberry jelly is transferred to the plate.
