  • 3 cups fresh cranberries (12 ounces)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 navel orange, peel and pith removed, flesh cut into segments


  1. Stir together cranberries, sugar, and ginger in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved and cranberries begin to pop, about 7 minutes.

    Used two Clementines since it is the season and had fresh white ginger from the farmer's market. Added some zest from a clementine and followed the other instructions. So far, so good. It looks beautiful in Grandma's cut glass bowl. I hope it is as good as Martha's recipe from years past (which I couldn't find) using Satsuma oranges. Seems pretty similar. That recipe makes incredible berries enjoyed even by non-cran lovers. If you have leftovers try them over vanilla ice cream.
