    I am revamping my recipes to fit my son's low sugar/ low carb diet. What sweetener can I use for cranberry sauce( my recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar).
    I am trying to stay awayas we do from artificial sweeteners care for the after taste. Thank You in advance for your help.

    Hi debbysa, what a wonderful thing to do for your son! Good luck to both of you!

    I did want to point you to this quick, easy to read article regarding artificial sweeteners by the Mayo Clinic. It gives really good, informative info so it might help you decide what would be better for your use.

    http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/artificial-sweeteners/MY00073

    Some of us here don't really like the chemically produced artificial sweeteners as much as the more natural ones. Sometimes, they are to sweet, or have a bad aftertaste. For your cranberry sauce, I would probably choose Stevia/Truvia in equal amounts, however, taste, taste, taste - (they make granulated) but add a little first, and add more if needed. You might also want to look into Agave, but I would want to be sure it wouldn't alter the taste of the fresh cranberries.

    I hope this helps! Let us know.

    Andi,
    Thank You so much for the link ! That chart is just just what I am looking for.

    I think I may use a combination. I have already substitued OJ for water.I think I may try the Stevia.

    Thanks for you response and have a happy Holiday.

    I think, you can try a mixture of not-soft fruits as a substitute for cranberries with just a short sugar boil. Apples, oranges, or blueberries would be quite good selection for replacing cranberries sauce. You can also add a dash of cinnamon, & nutmeg. Try it, Hope it will work!
