Don’t think you like cranberry sauce? You MUST try this!
Only EVER had canned cranberry sauce? You definitely MUST try this!
Confession… I used to HATE cranberry sauce.
2nd confession… when I say I used to HATE cranberry sauce, it’s kind of fabricated because the truth is I had always REFUSED to try cranberry sauce.
3rd confession… I eat this Instant Pot Cranberry sauce for days. It is so good on toast like jam, over ice cream as a topping, on pancakes and waffles, or just by the spoon full.
Pin this recipe for later!
As a child, growing up, we ALWAYS had the canned stuff. I apologize if you like canned cranberry sauce, because I don’t mean to offend you I swear but the stuff disgusts me. Something about it being so gelatinous that you can cut it into circles… and the marks on the circles that result from it being in that can. I just can’t…
Let’s get on to the good stuff…
- 2 T canola or vegetable oil
- 1 sm onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 t seasoned salt
- 1 t salt
- 1 t black pepper
- 1/4 t onion powder
- 1/2 t garlic powder
- 1 t dried thyme
- 1-2 bay leaves optional
- 16 oz dried black eyed peas rinsed
- 1 ham bone with ham remaining
- 5 cups water
- hot sauce optional
Turn Instant Pot on sauté, allow to heat, then add oil. Sauté onion and garlic in pot 3-4 minutes. Add seasoning, stir & sauté additional minute.
Add dried black eyed peas and water. Stir. Add ham bone.
Close lid and vent knob. Cook on high pressure 25 minutes. Allow pressure to naturally release (NPR).
Open lid, remove bone, and remove ham from bone. Dice ham and add back to pot. Stir. Close lid and vent knob and cook again on high pressure for 2 minutes.
Allow NPR for 15 minutes then release remaining pressure.
Stir and serve with hot sauce, cornbread and other fixings as desired.

Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce
Serve in a variety of ways… Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce is so not limited to your turkey dinner. Try it on sandwiches, or pork chops, or fried chicken. If you’re like me, as I admitted earlier, you might want to try this over vanilla ice cream… I’ve also had it on peanut butter toast, on english muffins over cream cheese, pancakes, waffles, toast, crepes, oatmeal, yogurt…
