Ten Amazing From-Scratch Blogger-Tested Recipes for Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce

Ten Recipes for Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce
Make homemade cranberry sauce in the slow cooker and you don't have to watch it!

Thanksgiving is coming whether we're ready or not.  I love Thanksgiving, and I've been having fun  sharing lots of ideas for Thanksgiving dishes in the slow cooker.  Before I compile those all together in a big round-up post of 50 Recipes a Slow Cooker Thanksgiving (coming tomorrow) I wanted to update this post from with last year to make it an even Ten Amazing From-Scratch Blogger-Tested Recipes for Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce.  (And if you'd like to get started planning early, check the bottom of this post for links to all the slow cooker Thanksgiving collections I've shared!)

Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce
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.


The Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce from Emily Bites includes Weight Watchers information for anyone who wants it.


At Kitchen Parade you'll find a recipe for Slow Cooker Whole Cranberry Sauce that was sent by a reader, and Alanna confirms it's a winner!


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.


The Gracious Pantry has Clean Eating Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce.


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 or another sweetener of your choice.


At Heather's Dish, Heather says she started making CrockPot Holiday Cranberry Sauce to help with scheduling on Thanksgiving, and that sounds like a good reason to me!


Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce from Burnt Apple is sweetened with maple syrup.


And one more slightly different idea for Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce from Skinny Ms.  This one has orange juice, cinnamon, and is sweetened with honey.

A Thanksgiving feast is never complete without a really good cranberry sauce. Thanks so much for including mine, Kalyn!

Dara, my pleasure. Your sauce looks amazing!

What a neat idea - making cranberry sauce in a crockpot - I love my crockpot during holiday season. It's like having an extra stovetop.

Kalyn Denny said...

Jeanette, I agree that this is a great idea to free up the stove! And I love the idea of having warm cranberry sauce.
