Mulled Apple Cranberry Sauce/Jam


  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup organic mulling spices (allspice, cloves, ginger, cinnamon)
  • 1 & 1/2 pounds fresh cranberries
  • 1/2  cup maple sugar (can use beet sugar or cane sugar)
  • Sea salt

Wrap mulling spices in a cheese cloth. Bring apple juice and mulling spices up to a boil and cook, covered, for 5 minutes.  Add the cranberries and sugar, and bring back up to a boil. Lower heat to medium/low and cook 15-20 minutes or until all of the cranberries have popped. Remove the cheesecloth with the mulling spices and discard. You can also use this cranberry sauce as a jam to spread on bread. It’s delicious!

    I made this and it was delish and I enjoyed cooking it!! I do have a question… I chose to put clove for the mulling spice. Do I leave it in the whole time? I chose to and it was strong, but still good. I might just be use to the canned version and need to change my palate once again…Thank you:))))

    • @disqus_lUazQtEd41:disqus Yay! so happy you enjoyed making it and eating it! Yes, you can leave cloves in the whole time (and yes, they are strong). Just remember to remove them before you start eating.
