Tangy Cranberry Sauce

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min.


3 cups

"I use this fruity sauce with baked or grilled meats," notes field editor Marlene Muckenhirn of Delano, Minnesota.


  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce


  1. Place the first nine ingredients in a blender; cover and process until almost smooth. Transfer to a saucepan; add cranberry sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve warm or cold as an accompaniment to poultry or pork. Refrigerate leftovers.
