The Incredible Cranberry


Plus no cook recipe!

Cranberries are often described as antioxidant powerhouses and scientific research suggests the consumption of the kinds of antioxidants found in cranberries may be associated with a reduced incidence of urinary tract infections as well as cardiovascular benefits in men!  Additionally, it’s been suggested that just 1 cup daily may help improve memory too. That said, a 1 cup serving is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of manganese and fiber.

Now, not many folks eat fresh “raw” cranberries, mainly due to the sour taste, but with the holidays just around the corner, now is the perfect time of year to incorporate this festive fruit into your diet. Whether you are making the whole dinner or taking a dish to a friend’s house, add some cranberries to the meal with a tart, tangy and nutritious cranberry sauce. 

We love this simple and less processed form of cranberry sauce because you don’t even have to cook it!  Just blend them into a coarse sauce-like consistency instead! With our signature recipe below you’ll have a fresh, vibrant, bold, flavorsome cranberry sauce that the whole family will be coming back for more of.

No Cook Cranberry Sauce  Makes about 2 ½ cups



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F
  2. Place the walnuts on a tray and put into the oven to toast, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  3. At the same time, place the mustard seeds on another tray and put in the oven to toast or until they pop, about 3 minutes. Then remove from the oven and place into a small sauce pan along with the finely diced red onion, diced chili, dried cherries, maple syrup, sherry vinegar, nutmeg and salt. Gently warm on the stove until the onions are soft and the cherries have plumped up slightly. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  4. Place the cold walnuts along with 1 ½ cups of the fresh cranberries into a blender and pulse 4 to 5 times, just enough to coarsely chop everything together but not to the point of puree. Tip out into a bowl and fold in the remaining whole cranberries, onion mixture and the chopped cilantro. Cover with plastic and let the flavors infuse for 30 minutes before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
