This marmalade is thickened with chia seeds and sweetened with honey! A great way to add a healthy touch to a Thanksgiving staple!



1 1/2 cups water

1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries

1/3 cup dried apricots

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 medium orange (, zested, segments removed, and juiced)

4 tablespoons chia seeds


Bring water and cranberries to a boil in a saucepan.

When the water is boiling, add the orange segments and juice.

Simmer on low for 10 minutes.

Place the cranberries and water (do not drain) and orange segments in a blender.

Add honey, zest, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Pulse a few times to break up the cranberries.

Add in the chia seeds and apricots.

Pulse a few more times to combine.

You can puree until smooth or leave it chunky like I did. Your pick!

Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours to let it continue to thicken.

Store in the refrigerator for two weeks.
