Craft Elixirs Cranberry Sauce

Canna-Citrus-Apple Cranberry Sauce

This personal favorite holiday dish features ‘Fremont Freaks’, a cannabis-infused dried fruit snack from Craft Elixirs (an edibles company making next-level treats available in pot stores throughout Washington State). If you aren’t able to source cannabis-infused dried fruits, you can sub decarboxylated kief to weed-ify this seasonal classic.

Canna-Citrus-Apple Cranberry Sauce



  • Squeeze the juice from the orange and set the juice aside. Scrape and discard the white pith from inside the orange rind, then dice the remaining rind.
  • In a large saucepan over high heat, combine the rind and the water and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes.

  • Peel, core and quarter the apple. Cut into 1/2-inch dice and place in a saucepan. Sort the cranberries, discarding any soft ones. Add to the apples along with the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and sunflower lecithin. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and cover.

  • Simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, the apple is tender and the cranberries have burst, about 10 to 15 minutes.
