Candied Ginger Island Cranberry Sauce

The aromatic ginger combined with cranberries makes this an exotic, lively twist on the traditional cranberry sauce.

Serves 10


  • 2 (12-ounce) packages fresh cranberries
  • ¼ cup filtered water
  • 8 dates, soaked in filtered water for 30 minutes and pitted
  • 1 cup candied ginger cubes
  • Dash cinnamon


In a small saucepan, simmer all the ingredients over medium heat until the cranberries and dates break down to form a sauce. Adjust the sweetness to taste. Cool and serve.
