Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce

If you love fresh cranberries and pomegranate seeds, you are going to LOVE this dish.

One of my favorite sides to make for the holidays, both Thanksgiving and Christmas, is this cranberry pomegranate sauce. Well its about high-time I share this sweet and tangy recipe with you.

It’s so simple to prepare and goes perfectly with my Fig-Spiced Turkey. A true family tradition, and favorite! Plus the leftovers spread on a turkey sandwich are out of this world.

Make this cranberry sauce a few days before your dinner and sprinkle additional pomegranate seeds and fresh orange zest when ready to serve.

You might want to even double the recipe to ensure Thanksgiving leftovers as a jam on biscuits and scones.

This dish is sure to be a hit with your family and friends at your next holiday gathering. While you’re at it take a look at some of my other must have dishes for Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
