  • 1 (12-ounce) bag fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)


  • Prepare Ingredients:
    • Rinse and drain the fresh cranberries. Grate the ginger and zest the orange.
  • Combine Ingredients:
    • In a DiamoTech Wok, combine the cranberries, granulated sugar, orange juice, orange zest, grated ginger, and ground cinnamon if using.
  • Cook on the Stove:
    • Bring the DiamoTech Wok to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar.
  • Simmer:
    • Once it boils, reduce the heat to medium-low and let the mixture simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens.
  • Adjust Sweetness:
    • Taste the sauce and adjust the sweetness if needed. Add more sugar if you prefer a sweeter sauce.
  • Cool:
    • Remove the DiamoTech Wok from heat and allow the cranberry sauce to cool. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Serve or Refrigerate:
    • Once cooled, transfer the Ginger-Orange Cranberry Sauce to a serving dish. It can be served immediately or refrigerated until ready to serve.
  • Garnish (Optional):
    • Garnish with additional orange zest or a slice of orange for a decorative touch.

This Ginger-Orange Cranberry Sauce offers a perfect balance of tartness from the cranberries, sweetness from the orange juice, and a subtle warmth from the ginger. It's a delightful and flavorful addition to your Thanksgiving feast!
