Fermented Cranberry Sauce

A delicious, nutritious fermented cranberry sauce.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 2 days


  • 12 ounces organic cranberries
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup organic apple juice
  • Juice and zest of one organic naval orange
  • 1/4 teaspoon Caldwell's Starter Culture


  • Sterilize 1 quart jar or 2 pint jars.
  • Put the starter culture into a small bowl and pour the apple juice over it to let it sit while you work.
  • Next, mix the cranberries, honey, sea salt, and orange juice in the bowl of a food processor. You can mix until it is smooth or leave it chunky, your choice. If you want it really smooth, like the cans from childhood, you will need to blend it in a high powered blender.
  • Finally, stir in the zest and the starter culture/apple juice mixture.
  • Pour the cranberry sauce into your jar(s). Top with airlock lids. Let the jars sit on your counter, out of direct sunlight, for 2 days (48 hours).
