So Sweet Kiwi Cranberry Sauce & Syrup!

Print & Share:

The holidays are all about music, mistletoe, and making memories with the ones you hold near and dear to your heart. That’s why this Yuletide season, we’re proposing a kitchen challenge to rummage through your cupboards and ditch the cans! Since you’re already devoting time and attention to cooking a big golden turkey in the oven, why not take a couple minutes more to throw some cranberries in a saucepan, heat them up, and serve homemade kiwi cranberry sauce alongside your tasty bird? You won’t be disappointed with the rich, hearty flavor that only using fresh cranberries can impart, and you certainly won’t regret the time you share together with your family while you chop, smash, and splash in the kitchen!

Toss out your wiggly, ribbed store-bought sauce and create a homemade dish to truly savor! This Kiwi Cranberry Sauce is really something uniquely mouthwatering because it’s made with juicy, plump Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit! The addition of this delicious super fruit lends a crisp, zesty flavor that lingers in your mouth long after the last spoonful is devoured. The kiwfruit, along with a splash of refreshing orange juice and a pinch of warming cinnamon, makes this sauce totally share-able (but we won’t judge if you decide eating it is a one-person job)!

PS: If you’ve already stocked up on canned cranberry sauce, why not toss it into a donation box and give it to a family in need?!

SunGold Kiwifruit Cranberry Sauce

Makes: 2 cups

Ingredients:

  •  2 large oranges
  • 1” thick strip orange peel
  • 4 SunGold Zespri kiwifruit, peeled and diced (let the kids dice the kiwi -younger kids can use plastic knifes) See the Super Crew age guide for cooking.
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 oz fresh or frozen cranberries

Directions:

  1. Cut oranges in half and squeeze juice into a bowl and remove any seeds. If this doesn’t yield 1 cup, add water to equal this amount of liquid.
  2. Place juice and all remaining ingredients except cranberries in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Simmer, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add in cranberries and bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat and gently simmer for 40 minutes, until cranberries look shiny, soft, and ready to pop and the whole mixture is thickened.
  4. Take out the orange peel, and place in a serving bowl. For a thicker sauce, cover and place in refrigerator overnight.

If you’ve got a whole house full of guests over the holidays and you’re stumped on breakfast ideas, look no further than this thick, sweet, and satisfying syrup– it’s the antidote to grumbling tummies! Plain ole maple syrup is so last year, this season we’re obsessing over Berry Kiwifruit Syrup! Made with ripe Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit brimming with luscious tropical flavor, this is one excuse where it’s A-Okay to get saucy.

Feel free to pour this heavenly mixture on top of a big stack of pancakes before you open all those presents underneath the tree. You could drizzle it over a bowl of steaming oats first thing in the morning. Or just whirl it into some creamy yogurt for a quick snack on the go. Either way, using up leftover fruit from another recipe has never been so easy and so amazingly delish.
