Better Cranberry Sauce

Fresh Cranberries

My Grandmother always made fresh cranberries for us. Never did like that canned cranberry sauce.

We can make a better version without the cup of processed sugar.

Stuff You Need:

1 bag, fresh cranberries (12 ounce bag.)

Instead of the 1 cup of water use ½ cup pineapple juice and ½ cup water

1/4 cup of applesauce (unsweetened)

1-2 Tablespoons of honey (You can always add more at the end)

What To Do:

Put cranberries, pineapple juice, applesauce and water in a sauce pan, bring to a boil.

Keep on medium heat; stir constantly and wait for the cranberries to start to pop (about 10-15 minutes).

Simmer 10-15 minutes and remove from heat.

Cool completely and store in fridge for a couple hours. The pectin in the berries will thicken as it cools.

Taste at the end of cooking. If it’s not sweet enough for you add a little more applesauce or honey. Add some crushed pineapple, preferably fresh.

There are sugar free sweeteners but remember they are not healthy. The point of all this is to have a healthier cranberry sauce. Sugar Free.

If you enjoy Orange flavor in your berries add a dash of Orange Juice.
