Want to make cranberry sauce using your Instant Pot pressure cooker? Check out this super easy and delicious one minute Instant Pot cranberry sauce.
To be honest, I hadn’t made homemade cranberry sauce before and was amazed at how easy it is. For years when I thought of cranberries, I thought of the jelly in the can with the lines. There is so much more to cranberries than that!
Because cranberries are quite tart, you will need to use a sweetner of some kind. Sugar, Splenda, and honey all work equally well in this recipe.
The orange zest is optional but adds a wonderful flavor. If you have it, feel free to add 2-4 Tablespoons of fresh orange juice along with the zest.
