Cranberry Sauce in the  Instant Pot

Instant pot cranberry sauce is a delicious dish to add to any meal, most famously known for being part of your Holiday table!

I feel like cranberry sauce preferences is one of those hot holiday meal debates. We are divided in our family on the topic. Half of us love the gloopy stuff from the can and half of use love homemade.

Rinse a bag of fresh cranberries.


Add orange juice, orange zest, sugar, cranberries, cinnamon and nutmeg to an Instant Pot.


When it's done, do a 10 minute natural release. Release the remaining pressure, remove the cover and give mixture a stir. Allow it to cool completely.


For extra flavor, consider adding 1 tbsp of maple syrup or brown sugar, even a couple vanilla beans before cooking.


When storing, press plastic wrap directly onto its surface before refrigerating. This will prevent a film from forming on the surface and the sauce fresh.


Add 2 cinnamon sticks to the pot before cooking for an extra punch of cinnamon flavor!
