Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce

With November in full swing, we wanted to provide a few of our tried and true Thanksgiving recipes. Many recipes call for refined sugar, but did you know you can substitute honey? We recommend using 2/3 cup-3/4 cup honey for every 1 cup of refined sugar. For the recipe below, we use California Orange Blossom honey – the sweet citrus notes make it a perfect match to use.

  4. Cook on high for 2 ½ hours, stirring at least once an hour.
  5. Turn off slow cooker, remove lid and allow cranberry sauce to sit for at least 15 minutes to cool.
