Cranberries are one of those things that I go overboard on in
the winter and then rarely use them the rest of the year – except that’s going to change with this recipe for cranberry bbq sauce! It’s tangy and a little sweet, but the perfect addition to grilled chicken or to smear on a grilled turkey and cheese sandwich. I developed this recipe for sauce as part of Cape Cod Select’s First Annual Blogger Recipe Challenge.This was my first time working with Cape Code Select Premium Frozen Cranberries and I was really impressed with them. They’re packaged in a bag with a resealable top to make it easy to portion out and because they’re frozen, they’re available year-round! Check to see if your local grocery store carries them!
After creating this sauce recipe, I cooked a batch of chicken wings in my instant pot, tossed them in sauce and then under the broiler they went…. and I didn’t get pictures before they were gobbled up!

15 oz tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 1/2 cups frozen Cape Cod Select Premium Frozen Cranberries
salt and fresh ground pepper
Combine all the ingredients in a heavy bottom sauce pan. Simmer on medium until the cranberries are cooked through and begin to burst. Remove from the heat and puree using an immersion blender. Allow to cool before transferring to a glass container. Place in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours for the flavors to really come together. Use in place of your favorite bbq sauce.
