  • 12 oz. pack fresh cranberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ cup natural sweetener or regular sugar if you prefer.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  • Turn on the Instant Pot. Pout water and add the cranberries. Mix well to combine and close the lid.
  • Press Manual for 1 minute. Let the pressure release naturally for about 7 minutes. Turn the value to Venting position and release all pressure. When the pressure is totally released, open the lid.
  • Press off and then press Sauté mode. Add sweetener, vanilla and orange zest. Stir well.
  • Sauté for 2-3 minutes or until the cranberry sauce gets the consistent that you like. I prefer mine like a jam consistency.
  • Let it cool down before transfer into a jar.
