Sugar-free cranberry sauce that is bursting with flavor. Honey-sweetened cranberry sauce brings a special treat to the holiday table.
Cranberries have gotten a bad rap over the years. People either hate them because they’re too sour or are freaked out by the sound they make and the shape they retain coming out of the can. :shudders:: On the other hand, some people love them, but only because pounds of sugar has been mixed in to sweeten the ever loving snot of them.
Cranberries are a superfood and are so good for you. They are full of antioxidants and vitamins that keep you healthy during cold and flu season. And you wish to repay this humble little berry with multiple cups of sugar? You’re better than that!
Sugar-Free Cranberry Sauce
- In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the orange juice and honey over medium-high heat.
- Add the cranberries, and bring to a boil until you hear a bunch of little "pops". That is the cranberries bursting through their skins. Take a potato masher and gently crush the cranberries until the sauce becomes the consistency you desire. Simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove the pan from the heat, and add the orange zest. Allow to cool at room temperature for 20-30 minutes. The cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
- Put in a container in the fridge to cool.
