Spicy Honey Cranberry Sauce in bowl

Spicy Honey Cranberry Sauce

This cranberry sauce has the traditional flavors only made a bit feisty with some red chile honey. I used a brand I purchased when in New Mexico but noted several recipes on the web for making it oneself. My version has additional herbs and garlic which work great with the cranberries to give the sauce a full bodied and balanced flavor.

  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 2 tablespoons Red Chile Honey
  • ¼ cup Water
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed Orange Juice
  • 2 cups Cranberries (I use organic)


  • Bring the honeys and water to a boil.
  • Add the cranberries and bring back to a boil, stirring periodically. Boil on medium-low for about 10 minutes until the berries have burst and the sauce has thickened.
  • Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.


Total time includes the sauce resting for 10 minutes. Recipe can be doubled or tripled; adjust cooking time accordingly.
