How to cook


In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add cranberries and heat on medium-high. Add in the zest of the citrus and squeeze in citrus juice. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. Cranberries will start to pop. Mash them to the side of the pan with a fork as they soften.


Pour in honey and maple syrup. Turn heat to medium and stir occasionally. Cook another 10 minutes, popping the cranberries by mashing them as they cook.


Turn heat off and stir in vanilla. If desired, add in two cinnamon sticks. Sauce will thicken as it cools. Serve warm and store leftovers in the refrigerator!
