Cranberry sauce with raspberries

Funny how those decorative items popped up in the background

When one berry just isn’t enough…

Cranberry sauce with raspberries

  • 12 ounces cranberries
  • 12 ounces raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cranberry/pomegranate juice (100 percent cranberry is fine)
  • juice from 1/2 an orange
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom

Combine all ingredients in a 4-quart sauce pan. Set over medium heat and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until cranberries have burst and the sauce is thickened. This may take longer if using frozen berries. Let sauce cool before serving.

    Cranberry Raspberry sauce? Genius! I will make this for Christmas dinner for sure!

  2. The items in the background look great 😉 love this sauce, found fresh cranberries at the supermarket two days ago. Not sure what I’m gonna make with them…

  3. I’m normally not a big cranberry fan, but this looks like something I could get into! Cardamom in this sound wonderful.

  4. I love the addition of cardamom!

  5. Raspberries thrown in makes it sounds delicious. Now about the cranberry juice, I love drinking it so I may have to part with it just to make this lol

  6. Tandy says:

    this is a great adaption of the usual cranberry sauce 🙂

  7. How very festive of you!

  8. Liz says:

    Oh, gosh, this sounds AMAZING!!! What a lovely berry combination…perfect for Thanksgiving!

  9. This has to be the crown jewel among the gems. Thank you, thank you!

  10. You’ve done it.. again! What a perfect pairing and I think this would entice my son who isn’t a fan of cranberry sauce.

    Those raspberries really made this pop in color!! I’d never thought to add raspberries! Beautiful presentation and I’m sure great tasting!!

    Odd…this did not show up in my email this morning. I had to come to your site to check because I didn’t think there was anyway you’d skip a day. Glad I stopped and didn’t miss it. This looks out of this world. I love my cranberry sauce and I love raspberries. I have never thought to put them together. I may have to make two batches this year. (One can never have enough really.)

  13. Now I like the addition of raspberries. I will make one big bowlful for myself since my family’s not much of a cranberry sauce family.

  14. Local crannberries are in the markets now, and I can’t think of a nicer preparation for them. It would be great with roast pork, too…

    I never even thought of raspberry but I imagine it does brilliant things for the cranberry sauce. I will definitely be trying this for our thanksgiving cranberry sauce! Thanks for the recipe!

  16. yes! Fantastic combination. The problem for me is I’d just eat this cranberry sauce right out of the jar!

  17. spree says:

    oh my! well there goes my idea for posting cranberry sauce. this looks lovely! also looks like a double-batch is in order. thank you for this…the whole family thanks you!

  18. Sissi says:

    It sounds excellent, but what do you advise to do with this sauce? I would add some vodka and I’m sure the cocktail would be a big hit 😉 I have never seen such a funny corn!

  19. I can imagine how wonderfully raspberries smooth the zingy cranberries. The colour just pops at you!

  20. Kelly says:

    I’ve been adding orange to cranberry for some time but the raspberry and cardamom is fantastic! Can’t wait to try.

  21. never would have thought to add raspberries, this looks great!

  22. rsmacaalay says:

    This will equally be great with savoury dishes as well as bread or dessert topping!

  23. Charles says:

    Mm, sounds like a wonderful variation on the usual cranberry sauce! Wonderful colour too!

  24. Cranberries are one of those intriguing little berries that I never eat. I’m pretty sure Australia doesn’t grow any, I can get dry ones or juice and that’s about it. Are they found in abundance in the US?

    • They grow on street corners. I wish! We see them mainly around the holidays. You can always get juice here, but when we went to look for cranberries in early October couldn’t find any. There not cheap, but not exorbitantly expensive.

  25. Sound great, especially the addition of pomegranate juice

    That sauce sounds delicious!
