  • 1 12 oz. bag fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup pure pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed + plus extra to taste

  2. Remove from heat and mash with a potato masher. Taste & add more brown sugar, 1 tsp at a time, if desired.
  3. Cool at least 1 hour before serving.


May be prepared up to 5 days in advance. Store in a airtight container in the refrigerator.
