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. Put cranberries in a pot on the stove, and pick through to remove soft and/or brown ones.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and bring to a boil on medium-high heat.
  3. Stir frequently - the cranberries will pop, and then release their "gel" and the sauce will come together like magic. This takes about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool completely before refrigerating.

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]
