Haskapa Cranberry Sauce:

Web Chef Review: Ontario Cranberries at Harvest Barn Country Markets - cookingwithkimberly.comTo make this the awesome cranberry sauce, I am using Muskoka-grown, Ontario Cranberries from my local Harvest Barn Country Market in Niagara-on-the-Lake. They have another location in St. Catharines, Ontario and you can find them online at:

These plump, juicy cranberries are available fresh or frozen at Harvest Barn.

Web Chef Review: Haskapa Juice - cookingwithkimberly.comIn addition to cranberries, I am using haskap berry juice from Haskapa, out of Nova Scotia. Haskapa Juice is sweet, tangy & truly a delicious juice in its own right. You can find information on the wide variety of Haskapa products online at:

haskap berries - haskapa.comThe haskap plant originated in Russia and now can be grown across most of the Canadian provinces. The haskap berry is a super fruit, dark purplish color, with deep crimson flesh; it is oval in shape and about an inch long. The haskap berry has a delicious flavor, akin to a combination of cranberries, blueberries, raspberries & elderberries, and it is extremely versatile in its uses.

Both the Ontario cranberries and Haskapa Juice are available here locally, in southern Ontario, at either of the two Harvest Barn Country Markets.

  • basket of lemons1 pkg (3 – 4 cups) cranberries – fresh or frozen
  • haskap juice – If  using 3 cups cranberries, use 1 cup juice; if using 4 cups cranberries, use 1 1/4 cups juice; I used Haskapa Juice.
  • sugar – If using 3 cups cranberries, use 3/4 cup sugar; if using 4 cups cranberries, use 1 cup + 2 tbsp sugar.
  • 1 tsp lemon zest


  1. Rinse under cold water and drain cranberries. Quickly sort through cranberries removing any stems or blemished berries.
  2. Vollrath 4qt Sauce Pan - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comIn a medium-sized sauce pan, combine juice and sugar and stir through well.
  3. On medium-high heat, bring sugar & juice mixture up to a boil, reduce heat to simmer for 5 min to dissolve the sugar completely.
  4. Add cranberries to sugar mixture and stir through. Cover with a lid and bring back up to a boil. Then, reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook until the berries start to pop their skins – about 5 – 7 min.
    • Note: If you like some whole berries in your sauce, the sauce is now ready. If you like your sauce smoother, you can use your masher to break down more of the berries, to your taste.
  5. Stir in lemon zest.
  6. Taste test for sweetness and if more sugar is desired, add it in now and stir it through until it dissolves completely.

Serve alongside any poultry as an accompaniment, or red meats, if you so desire. We like cranberry sauce with sandwiches and even snacks.
