  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (make sure it's vegan as some US companies use bone char filters)
  • 3/4 cup blood orange juice (juice can be non-vegan as well, make sure you use a brand that does not use gelatin for filtering)


  • In a medium pot, heat the blood orange juice and white sugar on medium-high heat until it dissolved. Bring it to a boil.
  • Add in the fresh cranberries. Let it cook for about 10-15 minutes (with the lid off, so the juice can cook down)
  • Once the cranberries are soft and broken apart, let the sauce cool down. It will get thicker then.
