Cranberry sauce I feel like can be an afterthought – you get the obligatory can and call it a day. But cranberry sauce can be so much more – and doesn’t have to be shaped like a can. ✨
My mom would always make a spiced cranberry jello mold with apples + oranges so I made a twist on that and it turned out amazing and tastes just like she used to make. ✨
The holidays can be hard – I lost my mom 9 years ago so there will always be a hole during this time. But doing things like making her recipes and carrying on traditions can be incredibly healing. 🖤
•1/3 cup Water
•2 tbsp Maple Syrup
•1 tsp Lemon Zest
•½ Lemon (Juice)
•1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
•1/2 tsp Cinnamon
•2 cups Fresh or Frozen Cranberries
•½ Apple (Red, Chopped)
•½ Navel Orange (Chopped)
•1 package Gelatin (I used a @vitalproteins individual stick pack) -
1️⃣In a small sauce pan, combine the water, maple syrup, lemon zest, lemon juice, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes.
2️⃣Add the cranberries and cook for 5-10 minutes. The cranberries should burst and the sauce will thicken. Add in apples, oranges, and the gelatin packet and stir to combine.
3️⃣Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a mold, or storage jar. Allow to chill for at least 2-3 hours before serving.
