Nutritional Information


3 cups

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

2 cups water

3 1/2 cups Ocean Spray® Cranberries

1 (2-inch) strip of orange zest

1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt


In a 3-4 quart sauce pan, simmer onion and water uncovered until onion is tender (10-15 min). Add cranberries and orange zest and simmer, uncovered, until berries collapse (about 10 minutes). Remove zest, puree cranberries in a food processor and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a heavy sauce pan.

Discard solids (pulp). Stir in sugars, Chinese Five spice powder, and salt. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, then cool completely.

Ketchup will hold for 1 month under refrigeration in an air tight container.

Makes 3 cups.

This is fantastic and I think the Chinese 5 Spice goes so well with the cranberries. I made the recipe as is, only thing is it made exactly 2 cups of ketchup, not 3 cups.
