I asked for some sugar free cranberry sauce recipes on the diabetic forum and got this recipe from LARavenscroft! I added it for safe keeping and to share. Cranberries have 6 carbs per half cup. Total recipe has 12 carbs

I was looking at this for the holiday. I would change more of the splenda and add the slice almond or another nuts.
