6 Medjool dates, pitted

1 (12-ounce) bag cranberries, rinsed and drained

1 cup frozen dark sweet cherries

1 Tbsp orange zest

1 cinnamon stick

¼ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp allspice

1 cup orange juice

1 Soak the dates in hot water until softened, about 1 hour.

2 In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the cranberries, dark cherries, orange zest, and spices.

3 Drain the soaked dates and add to a blender with orange juice. Process until smooth, and pour blend into the saucepan.

4 Adjust the heat to medium-high until the cranberries begin to pop, then reduce to a slow simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

5 Remove from heat and allow to cool. The sauce will thicken as it cools.

6 Adjust seasoning to taste. For a sweeter sauce, add a few more cherries or blend another date.
