Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

In an attempt to reduce refined sugar, things have gotten a little nutty out there. There are certain things that, as far as I am concerned, require a whole heap of white sugar. Sweet cranberry sauce is one such thing, raspberry jam and my Nana’s shortbread are a couple of others. If you like your cranberry sauce sweet, you go for it. You will catch no flack from me this Thanksgiving. If, however, you want to try something a little different, here’s my take. I’m partial to the tartness of this version myself.

 


Cranberry Sauce

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh (or frozen) cranberries
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 3 oranges - juiced about 1 cup
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup

Method

Zest your oranges and then squeeze them for their juice.

In a pot bring to boil juice and zest.

Add cranberries - you will hear popping as the skins break.

Stir in maple syrup.

Let simmer until you achieve thick, goopy consistency - about 20 minutes - stirring occasionally.

    Thanks for a new twist on cranberry sauce … I've always just made it with sugar, but will give maple syrup a try this weekend!
