Makes 6-8 Servings (1 serving = 1/4 cup)
- Small Pan
- Lemon Squeezer (optional)
- Bowl or jar with an air-tight lid
(Note: Use all organic, fresh ingredients if possible)
2 cups frozen or fresh cranberries
1/2 cup goji berries (soak in water for a half hour before making sauce)
Juice of 1 medium orange
1 tbsp GROUND organic chia seeds
1 tbsp raw, unprocessed honey – Adding refined honey is just adding sugar.
Topping: 1-2 tbsp orange zest
STEPS TO SOMETHING DELICIOUS
Place the goji berries in enough water to cover them, and soak for a 1/2 hour. Once the goji berries are soft and rehydrated you can begin preparing the sauce. Cut the orange in half. Using a lemon squeezer or your hand, squeeze the juice into a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the cranberries, goji berries, and raw honey. Gently stir and bring mixture to a boil (about 2 minutes or so). Once the mixture is boiling reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 6 minutes, until the cranberries are soft and bursting open. Stir in the ground chia seeds (it is essential for them to be ground if you want the sauce to be smooth) and remove from heat. Stir until the mixture is thickened. Cool and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week. It tastes the best if the sauce is allowed to sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors and textures to merge. Top with a generous portion of orange zest upon serving (it really enhances the flavor, don’t skip it!). Delicious!
