  1. Put everything in a pot and bring to a simmer.
  2. As the cranberries cook, they will soften. Mash them against the sides of the pan like you would if you were making cranberry sauce. It is ok if you miss a few, this is going to also get blended.
  3. Once the sauce has thickened appreciably, blend the entire contents of the pot. Either a stick blender or stand blender is fine. I used a stick blender in my case.

Recipe Notes

If you taste it while it is hot and feel it is too spicy, don't adjust anything! It's just the ginger and cooling the sauce away from a simmer will tame it's heat.

If you don't want to use a store bought low carb ketchup, consider using my Keto Heinz-Style Ketchup recipe.
