I got this recipe in response to a request on the diabetic forum from LARavenscroft. I just made this for my DH for Thanksgiving. It is so easy to make and looks like a whole berry sauce. This is the simplest of homemade cranberry sauces - no spices, no orange peel, nothing extra. It is about the thickness of pudding. Use it not only only with turkey, but to put over yogurt or ricotta cheese for breakfast or a snack, or accompanying cheeses and nuts as a dessert.
- 1 (12 ounce) bag fresh cranberries
- 1 cup sugar substitute, like Splenda, choose one that equals 1 cup of regular sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Put cranberries in a pot on the stove, and pick through to remove soft and/or brown ones.
- Add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and bring to a boil on medium-high heat.
- Stir frequently - the cranberries will pop, and then release their "gel" and the sauce will come together like magic. This takes about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let cool completely before refrigerating.
Made this yesterday for thanksgiving....I loved being able to have cranberry sauce this year. Thank you!
Made this specifically for a diabetic friend of mine, & although I'd have liked to jazz it up a bit (with, yes, nuts & orange & things like that!), he really liked it as is & requested the recipe! In my book you've got a nice enough sauce, but in his, YOU'VE GOT A REAL WINNER! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Diabetes Awareness Month Tag Game]
