Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 2¼ cups


  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup Gustare Honeybell Orange Balsamic
  • 1 pound fresh Cape Cod cranberries, washed and stemmed (Orleans’ are the best!)
  • Zest of an orange


  1. Combine sugar, water and balsamic vinegar in a medium saucepan. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil. Add cranberries and return to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, add zest, and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap pressed directly on the surface. Cool completely at room temperature. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Note: If you prefer smooth cranberry sauce, cook as directed above. Remove from heat. Place a strainer over a bowl and add the whole cranberry sauce. Press with a wooden spoon to separate sauce from berries occasionally scraping the bottom of the strainer. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Save the berries to top a turkey sandwich!
