Recipes for Life: Raw Holiday Cranberry Sauce

With the Thanksgiving a week away and Christmas just around the corner, we're sharing Holiday recipes until the end of the year. Most of the recipes are from Rhonda's beautiful 269-page, spiral bound, Hallelujah Holiday Recipes – From God's Garden book. A number of pictures of both Rhonda and George, taken when they were children, are used as chapter dividers throughout the book. Many have bought the book as much for these photographs as for the recipes. The book is available by calling 1.800.915.9355 or on the internet at Many people include cranberry sauce as a part of their holiday meal, but usually it comes from a can. Well here is a cranberry sauce unlike any I have ever tasted, and it is not only raw, but absolutely delicious. Rhonda started making this one for me a few years ago and it's the first cranberry sauce I go back for seconds for. This recipe is found on page 38: Ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries (ground)
  • 1 orange (grate off outer rind and then chop very fine)
  • 2 ripe pears (peeled and chopped fine)
  • 1 medium apple (peeled and chopped fine)
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans (chopped into small pieces)
  • 4 celery ribs (chopped fine)
  • ½ cup raisins or dates (if using dates, chop fine)
  • * 1 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • * ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • * ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • * ½ cup raw unfiltered honey or agave nectar
Instructions Grind berries; add fruits, nuts and spices. Then place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve on a bed of leaf lettuce. Keeps well covered and in the refrigerator for several days. ENJOY Option: Leave berries whole and place in a saucepan with all remaining ingredients. Simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally. *Organic ingredients are always recommended.
