Pineapple-Cranberry Sauce

12 oz whole cranberries
1 cup pineapple wedges
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 inch knob ginger, grated

Bring the cranberries, ginger, pineapple, sugar and pineapple juice to a boil. Reduce heat then simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir. Serve hot or cold.

My thoughts:
Every year, we have a different theme for Thanksgiving. This year we decided to go slightly tropical-retro-kitsch and have a Hawaiian-inspired Thanksgiving. So of course, we had to add pineapple to our cranberry sauce! It turned bright pink but it added a ton of sweet, fruity flavor to the tart cranberries. Yum! I would make and eat this even if it didn't go with the theme.


  1. Oh, this looks yummy! I was hoping to find a new cranberry sauce recipe and this is it! Thanks!

  2. The recipe looks yummy and the Kaffe Fassett fabric in the background looks great too. Are you a quilter?

  3. Thanks, Lisa! I have made a few quilts but that is actually a napkin from the Fassett line at Crate and Barrel. Good eye!

  4. I made this, its one of my fav cranberry sauce recipes now....thanks for the pineapple idea
