|Great ideas for cranberry sauce in the slow cooker! (Photo of Crockpot Apple and Cranberry Sauce from Cookin' Canuck.)|
Thanksgiving Day is coming soon, and over the next few days I'm going to share some idea using the slow cooker for Thanksgiving recipes. Let's start out with Cranberry Sauce, something that's a great accompaniment to turkey and traditional for the Thanksgiving table.
First up, the gorgeous Crockpot Apple and Cranberry Sauce with Orange and Crystallized Ginger from Cookin' Canuck shown above. This sauce cooks for eight hours in the slow cooker, so you might want to cook it overnight and then warm it up in the slow cooker on Thanksgiving day.

A slightly different sauce that also features orange and ginger flavors is the Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce from The Lemon Bowl. For this recipe whole cranberries cook in the slow cooker with water, orange juice, sugar, orange zest, and grated ginger.

At A Year of Slow Cooking I found a slightly different version of Slow Cooker Homemade Cranberry Sauce that starts with fresh or frozen whole cranberries. This recipe has a touch of cinnamon.
For anyone who wants cranberry sauce without added sugar, this Sugar-Free Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce from The Perfect Pantry has whole cranberries cooked in no-sugar added apple juice or apple cider, and is sweetened with Splenda.
