Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cranberries, sugar, orange peel, orange juice, water and salt in a multicooker. Close and lock the lid. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Let pressure release naturally.

  • Remove the lid and switch to sauté mode. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool (the sauce will continue to thicken as it cools). Remove the orange peel before serving.


To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
