Servings 8 servings


  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup dried figs stems removed and quartered
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger peeled and grated


  • In a small saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and heat over a medium high and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and cook the sauce, stirring frequently, until almost all of the cranberries have burst and the sauce has thickened, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve, for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.


Do ahead or delegate: Make the sauce and refrigerate for 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Scramble flavor booster: Add another teaspoon of ginger or a pinch of salt.
