Savory Cranberry Sauce As An Intriguing Variation
We love cranberries and enjoy them raw and cooked, sweet, tart – and yes, savory – as in Savory Cranberry Sauce!
This Savory Cranberry Sauce uses classic holiday herbs like sage, rosemary and thyme in addition to sugar and balsamic vinegar to create a less sweet condiment that works perfectly alongside holiday turkeys, pork roasts, roast beef – even weeknight chicken!
The FODY Garlic-Infused Olive Oil and FODY Lemon & Herb Spice Blend make this super easy to throw together.
We have promised you from the get-go that at FODMAP Everyday® we are going to help you thrive! This isn’t about just getting by! How about using this sauce as a condiment alongside low FODMAP cheeses?
Set out a small crock of it on your cheese board, alongside low FODMAP crackers or bread of course, and be ready for a new taste sensation.

Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: Makes about 2 ¼ cups (630 g) of sauce; 18 servings; serving size 2 tablespoons of sauce
- 3 tablespoons FODY Garlic-Infused Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup (32 g) chopped scallions, green parts only
- 1/2 teaspoon FODY Lemon & Herb Spice Blend
- 3/4 cup (180 ml) dry red wine
- 1/2 cup (107 g) firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) balsamic vinegar
- 12 ounces (340 g) fresh or frozen cranberries
Heat oil in a medium-sized pot over medium heat until hot. Add chopped scallion greens and sauté for a few minutes, stirring often, until just softened but not browned.
Stir in spice mixture, cook for a few seconds, then stir in wine, brown sugar, vinegar and cranberries. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then adjust the heat down and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened. It will firm up further upon cooling.
Let cool to room temperature before serving. May be refrigerated in airtight container for up to one week for best flavor and texture. Bring to room temperature before serving.

I’ve just made this–without any sugar at all, and it’s just fine. The balsamic vinegar makes it sweet enough.
Great to know. Glad you are enjoying it.
