Paleo Cranberry Sauce

If you haven’t gathered by now, I’m not American (I’m from across the pond, and no that’s not Ausssieland). Thanksgiving is clearly not a big tradition in England (in fact I had only heard about it from TV shows like Friends before coming over to the US). I have to say I have never cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner, but I have tried my hand at a few traditional dishes, one of which is cranberry sauce.


I was surprised at just how easy it was to make cranberry sauce (just pop into some water, heat it up and add raw honey, and spice it up however you like), but having made a large batch of it, I was perplexed as to what to do with it all! Especially since I had no turkey and no Thanksgiving Dinner planned.

So here are my 23 ideas for what to do with leftover cranberry sauce….

1. Use it as Jam. Cranberry sauce tastes delicious when spread on some quick microwave paleo bread (recipe here)!

2. Make it into a Jello. This requires a tad more work than simply spreading it but is a great way to make a quick dessert! Simply heat up the cranberry sauce in the microwave for 90 seconds on high (if it’s been in the fridge), then add 1 tablespoon of gelatin powder and 1 tablespoon of water for each cup of cranberry sauce.

Stir well and heat up for 30 seconds to ensure all the gelatin has melted. Put into individual cups and refrigerate for 4 hours. If you find it too tart, then try making it with 1/2 cup orange juice and 1/2 cup cranberry sauce.

3. Use it to make Cranberry Bars. I just saw this idea on SCDforlife.com, where you’ll find the recipe!
