A surprising burst of fresh watermelon chunks adds excitement to homemade cranberry sauce. Sweet and tangy Watermelon Cranberry Sauce will be the talk of your table at the holidays and anytime you serve this sassy relish.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Dash ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups minced watermelon
What To Do:
  1. In a 3-quart saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, lemon juice and zest over medium-low heat. Simmer gently for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cranberries are tender, stirring occasionally.

Anyone know how far ahead I can make this recipe? I know you can normally store cranberry sauce for a few days, but I'm worried about the watermelon being grainy. Thanks!
