Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 16 oz Cranberries Frozen or Fresh
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 1 Orange
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 3 oz 2 Dogs Hot Sauce Michigan Cherry Habanero


  • Measure out all ingredients
  • Juice the orange, and either zest it or julienne the rind to be used. I prefer to use the rind, as it creates some nice color and texture.
  • Mix all ingredients in a medium sauce pan, and cook at a medium heat for 15-20 minutes (or until most of the cranberries have burst). The sauce will begin to thicken.
  • Let it cool to room temp, and serve! Or you can refrigerate, and serve up to 6 days later.
