Cranberry and Blackberry Sauce
Serves 4-6

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small sweet onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1 cup fresh orange juice
½ cup honey
12 oz fresh or frozen cranberries (unsweetened)
2 tsp orange zest, chopped
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp cracked black pepper
2 cups fresh or frozen organic blackberries
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

  1. Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan and sauté until onions begin to soften (approximately 4-6 minutes). Add ginger and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Pour in orange juice and honey to mixture before adding cranberries. Increase heat slightly as cranberries begin to pop and break apart. Bring mixture to a boil. Continue to cook; stirring frequently until mixture thickens.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Add orange zest, salt, and black pepper and fold in blackberries along with parsley (if using). Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
