Blueberry & Cranberry Sauce

Get your slathering spoon ready this holiday, because this homemade version of the traditional cranberry sauce is to die for! Made with simple and all-natural ingredients, this sauce is super easy to make the night before or day of any gathering.

The sweet delicate, flavor of these local blueberries from Black Pearl Farms pair perfectly with the tart cranberries. Add a dash of cinnamon and some local raw honey for good measure and be ready to slather on turkey or on a piece of toasted bread with some brie.

If you've already purchased fresh cranberries, all you have to add is some blueberries, cinnamon, local honey, fresh ginger and fresh lemon juice. And thankfully, most of this can be found in your freezer or pantry. This is also a great way to use up any leftover cranberries. It is so easy to make and if you're like my family, you will be eating it by the spoonful!

This recipe is such a great way to bring some local flare to your holiday dinner table––not to mention it tastes like sweet summertime! Just make sure to save some of those fresh blueberries you picked for the holidays. I always put at least 10 lbs of blueberries in my freezer for the winter. They are perfect to throw in smoothies and make quick sauces with, like the recipe below!
