  • 1 cup cranberries dry
  • 1 tea bag ginger or cinnamon tea
  • 5 cloves
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ginger grated
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

Optional (and recommended):

  • 1 clementine or orange


  • Place the dry cranberries in a bowl with 1 cup of hot water and a teabag for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a pan with a drizzle of coconut oil and add the drained cranberries.
  • If using the clementine, add the freshly squeezed juice and cinnamon, sticks, and cloves. Cook, stirring regularly for around 5 minutes.
  • Add the ginger.
  • Once the cranberries start to wilt, add the nutmeg and simmer further. You can add water if the cranberries are drying too much.
  • Next, add the maple syrup and taste. Cranberries are sour, and you want to get the sweet just right. You may want to add more syrup.
  • Continue to simmer; at this stage, it should look more like a cranberry jam.
  • Remove the cinnamon sticks and the cloves.
  • You can add to a jar, cool down, and store it in the fridge for later, or serve immediately.
