Raspberry Cranberry Sauce

Raspberry Cranberry Sauce from favfamilyrecipes.comThis raspberry cranberry sauce is a tasty twist on your regular cranberry sauce!  I decided to try making it this way because I am crazy about cran-raspberry juice!  It turned out so yummy, I am definitely adding this to my Thanksgiving menu from now on.  I am also really excited to try it on our pilgrim sandwiches!  That is one of my favorite recipes for leftover turkey and I usually get the cranberry sauce in a can, but this sauce tastes so much fresher and better!  When I made this recipe I actually doubled it so I could take some little containers around to my family.  This would make for a pretty little holiday gift for friends.
This was really easy to make and pretty inexpensive.  I got a huge bag of fresh cranberries at Costco.

Save Recipe


  • 1 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups fresh, whole, and uncooked cranberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 tsp almond extract (or vanilla)


  • Pour the sugar and water into a large saucepan. Stir together and bring to a boil on high.
  • Add the cranberries and raspberries and return to boiling.
  • Turn the heat down to medium so it is a low boil and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Place a strainer over a large bowl and pour the sauce in so the strainer catches the berries. Use a wire whisk to mash the berries to desired consistency then add them back to the sauce.
  • Stir in the almond extract then cover with some aluminum foil and let the sauce cool to room temperature on the counter.
  • Spoon sauce in to containers and keep refrigerated.

    This sounds great! I think I’ll try it with orange extract and maybe even a bit of orange zest.

    How much does this recipe serve?

    • Echo says:

      It makes about 4-5 cups of sauce, depending how many cranberries and raspberries you pack into a cup. So, if a serving size is 1/4 cup – that makes 16 servings. But, beware… this is really good and your guests will probably take more that 1/4 cup. 🙂

    Can this sauce be frozen? I’m making dishes ahead as much as possible to lessen stress on the big day!
