Fresh ginger, lime juice and zest give this cranberry sauce sharper flavor and a brighter taste, while the maple syrup provides rich depth.


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons finely shredded lime peel
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 (12-ounce) package cranberries (3 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger


  1. Place the water, sugar, maple syrup, lime peel, and lime juice into a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in the cranberries and cook the mixture for 5 minutes, then add the ginger and continue to simmer for an additional 6 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool prior to serving.
