  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • Optional: Orange slices and minced fresh parsley


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first 5 ingredients over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, until cranberries start to burst and mixture thickens, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. If desired, garnish with orange slices, additional chopped walnuts and minced parsley.
Toasting Nuts
To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
Sugared Cranberries
Heat 3 tablespoons light corn syrup in microwave until warm; gently toss with 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, allowing excess syrup to drip off. Toss in 1/3 cup sugar to coat. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set, about 1 hour.
