Blueberry Cranberry Sauce (Recipe Monday)

Monday, December 10, 2012

The second of my Thanksgiving Recipes comes from all-recipes, but I wanted to share because this was definitely my kind of cranberry sauce! I kept saying that this dish "smells like fall." I love sweet and sour combinations and this recipe is exactly that.  Because it uses half as much sugar as regular cranberry sauce it comes out nice and tart.  I might even consider using less sugar because I really enjoy the tartness.  The recipe is below and the only change I made was that i didn't "mash" up the cranberries and blueberries as much as the original recipe calls for.

Blueberry Cranberry Sauce


1 Package fresh cranberries (12 oz)
1 c Water
1/2 c Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Ground Allspice
1 pint Fresh Blueberries


  1. Wash cranberries and remove any stems.
  2. Place cranberries, water and sugar in medium saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat, stir and simmer for about 10 minutes until cranberries burst.
  3. Mix-in cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and blueberries.
  4. Transfer to bowl, let cool and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Try this Shariously easy variation of your basic cranberry sauce.
