Want a jelly-like cranberry sauce recipe with NO CORNSTARCH, NO PRESSURE COOKER, or ANY kind of thickener? Here’s the natural way to make some Restaurant style cranberry sauce that can be made in as quick as 5 MINUTES! I just love this recipe!

I’ve made this cranberry sauce recipe numerous times by now and absolutely love this recipe for jellied cranberry sauce. It can be made any time of year because it calls for Craisins, (dried cranberries.) This cooking method will naturally thicken your dried berries with no pressure cooker or thickeners! All you need is less than 10 minutes of your time to achieve this amazing jellied-like cranberry sauce. If you’ve ever had Ninety-Nine’s cranberry sauce (from their country fried chicken dish) then you have yet to try this replica. A total must make cranberry sauce recipe even if you’re not familiar with theirs — still a fabulous recipe to try and it’s HOMEMADE!

    I used pineapple juice and two pineapple rings in place of the water and it was great. Thanks so much

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Your welcome! Thanks for the feedback!

    • Sara F McKind

    Do you use sweetened dried craising

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      I use the original, dried-cranberries by Ocean Spray. It does say sweetened on the bottom right of the package.

    • Rhonda Bolinger

    Can I can this? Water bath it?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Rhoda, haven’t tried that. I know it freezes well.

    • Amy

    Turned out amazing! We doubled and also added 3 chopped apples. Will definitely make this again if I can’t find fresh cranberries

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Interesting Amy, never tried this with apples! I love this recipe for cranberry sauce especially since you don’t need fresh cranberries.

    • sandra l boerstler

    can you use the cranberry sauce and add to rasberry jello to make a cranberry jello mold?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      I’m not sure how that would work, Sandra.

    • María

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Your welcome, Maria! It does call for a little sugar but not too much 🙂
