Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce Recipe

A few weeks ago I read a recipe on my RRS feed for pomegranate cranberry sauce on the Pioneer Woman Cooks.  It sounded amazing, and I wanted to try it out before Thanksgiving to see if it was as good as it sounded.  When I got around to trying it a few days later, I was too lazy to look up the recipe, so I just followed the directions on the back of the bag of cranberries, substituting pomegranate juice for water, and adding  a little lemon juice.  The result was absolutely delicious.  Once you try this recipe, you might never buy the stuff in a can again.

All you need is a bag of fresh cranberries, some pomegranate juice, sugar, and a lemon.


I forgot the lemon in the picture because I am like that.

Start by adding the pomegranate juice and sugar to a large pot. Once all the sugar is dissolved, add the cranberries.


Bring it all to a boil,


then reduce the heat and allow it to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Pour the contents into a large bowl, and add the lemon juice. Allow to cool completely to room temperature before refrigerating.


Stir before serving, and enjoy.

    I am so making this! BTW your quick pizza crust saved my lunch a few weeks ago- it really is good. I don’t think I will ever make the high maintenance kind again 🙂 Now if I can just find a quick easy and delicious vegan cheese recipe…..
