Tangerine Cranberry Sauce
Thanksgiving is coming!
I look forward to the food, but I especially love it when some else cooks the turkey. We’ve done Thanksgiving a few different ways over the years. We’ve had semi-coordinated potluck (attendees agree to bring a particular dish), full-on hosting duties (the host makes everything), and my personal favorite—going out to a restaurant.
Don’t get me wrong. I love all the home-cooked food, but every year or two it’s nice to take a break from washing dishes. It looks like this year will be a hybrid of several Thanksgiving types. We’re going out to eat, but we’re also going to be visiting relatives throughout Thanksgiving week, which means more than one Thanksgiving meal.
I’d like to be able to bring something to put on the Thanksgiving table when I go visiting, so I came up with this idea for Tangerine Cranberry Sauce. (I’ll probably bring my favorite squash casserole and maybe some cornbread, too.)
I absolutely love citrus flavored cranberry sauce, and this gives the traditional orange cranberry sauce an exciting new twist.
As a Florida resident, I’m proud to share my home state with my favorite juice brand, Noble Juice. They’ve been in the citrus business since 1927, and I’ve been working with them to create tasty recipes using their high quality juices.
For this Tangerine Cranberry Sauce recipe, I’ll be using Noble Juice 100% Florida Tangerine Juice. With fresh squeezed flavor just like a real tangerine, you’ll enjoy this not-from-concentrate juice for drinking and for using in your favorite recipes (like this one).

Tips for Making Tangerine Cranberry Sauce
- Whole cranberries can be found in the frozen foods section of your grocery store, usually with the frozen fruit.
- Tangerine juice can be found in the refrigerated juice section. Look for Noble Juice 100% Florida Tangerine Juice!
- To garnish this cranberry sauce, add a bit of grated tangerine peel to the top of the finished sauce when it’s ready to serve.
- If you have looked and can’t find tangerine juice, you can substitute orange juice.
Tangerine Cranberry Sauce

I love cranberry sauce and this Tangerine Cranberry sauce sounds like it is on point!! YUM!! Great recipe!!
I host Thanksgiving every year for at least 15 guests – sometimes more, never less – and my southern cornbread dressing (aka stuffing) MUST have cranberry sauce as its sidekick. Just can’t eat it without it. I know I’ll love your spin on cranberry sauce because I love the fresh, citrus taste of tangerines. Oh my yum!
I never would have thought to make a cranberry sauce like this!! This sounds amazing for Thanksgiving dinner!!
I am totally going to make this for Thanksgiving this year! My mom’s favorite side is cranberry sauce. I bet this Cranbury tangerine sauce would go over so well.
This looks like a great recipe for the holidays! I love both of those flavors and it seems that they would balance each other perfectly. Thanks for sharing!
I’ll be the first to say it- I really cannot stand cranberry sauce. I do love dried cranberries, but otherwise just not a fan. This sauce, however, looks like something I could enjoy.
I love the tang of the cranberry and sweet of the tangerine. This would be a perfect addition to the Thanksgiving table.

I’m not a fan of cranberry sauce but I do love tangerines. My taste buds feel torn a bit, this might be the hybrid that I need to make me like this holiday treat.
This rocks! We make a cranberry sauce every year! I would love to change up the flavors with some tangerine this time.
I’ve never heard of a tangerine cranberry combination, sounds intriguing and very original and it looks delicious. The recipe seems easy to follow, thanks for sharing.
I know it takes a bit longer to prepare but I think (by the looks of it) it will be well worth it in the end! Looks so tasty!
This looks like a unique way to make cranberry sauce. I am intrigued by the idea of a citrus with the cranberry, I am betting this tastes super delish!
Omg can we say yum?!? I just love cranberries. Must give your recipe a try.
I love anything with cranberries in it, year round at that. I will have to try your recipe at our Thanksgiving get together this year.
