Sorry for being off the map for the last few days. This weekend my husband and I were off the map, quite literally, camping and hiking throughout no man’s land, and it has taken a couple of days to get things back in order.
As happy as I am to be back, I must say it was nice to have a few days to enjoy the wilderness, just the two of us.
That being said, it is time to get on track for the big day! Can you believe Thanksgiving is just two days away??
Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce. Amazingly, it was only one year ago when I first made my own-from scratch-cranberry sauce. From the beginning I have been astonished with how easy this delicious item is to create. Since my first attempt I have played with, adjusted, changed sweeteners and eventually came to the recipe I will share with you tonight.
I find this sauce to be the ideal balance of sweet and savory. Agave Nectar gives needed sweetness without a crazy sugar rush. Clementine’s have their own unique flavor and balance the tart cranberries wonderfully. Adding pecans gives balance to the overall dish.
Should I not ‘see’ you again before then, I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and pray that your plates are filled with joy, your cup overfloweth, and that you find many reasons to celebrate this holiday season.
Clementine Pecan Cranberry Sauce
- 4c Fresh Cranberries

- Zest and peel Clementine’s. In medium stock pan, combine all ingredients including zest and fruit from 2 Clementine’s. Over medium-high heat, stir mixture until cranberries begin to ‘pop’. Lower heat to medium and continue to stir until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and allow to cool 10-15 minutes. Serve warm or refrigerate and serve cold.
