Orange zest from 1 orange
1 cup fresh orange juice, no pulp
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
Pinch of salt

How to Make Cranberry Sauce in an Instant Pot

Wash the cranberries and allow to dry, set to the side.

Turn your Instant Pot “on” to saute. Add the cranberries, orange juice, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon. Stir to combine.

Lock the instant pot lid and move the valve to “sealing” position. Press the high-pressure button on your instant pot to manual high for 3 minutes.

Allow it to natural pressure release for 10 minutes, then carefully do a quick release.

Using a potato masher, mash the cranberries to a jelly consistency.

Select the saute button and stir the sauce until it thickens and reduces in size.

Take the inner pot out of the instant pot and leave to cool completely at room temperature before storing the sauce in a clean airtight jar.
