Do not use water. Use Ocean Spray cranberry juice. Im waiting for a batch made with cran pineapple to cool.Ive used apple cider too
Non Sugar Fruit Flavorings to add
I am diabetic so I used 1/4 cup of the sweetener (in the yellow bag) plus 1/4 cup white sugar.
You can always add more to taste if not sweet enough for you.
Now for the extra fruit flavor secret. Take a jar of no sugar added jam such as Smucker's or Polaner made with (the sweetener in the yellow bag) and melt it in with the berries. Use:
Orange Marmalade makes cranberry orange.
Grape makes cranberry grape.
you get the idea. Use what you would like, black berry cranberry is delicious etc.
Perfect cranberry sauce!
Like other reviewers, I cut the amount of sugar in half. My guests actually remarked that they loved it because it was sweet, not too tart. I think it is because the sugar didn't overpower the cranberry flavor. I would definitely make this again!
Delicious way to enjoy cranberries on anything! During the holidays with stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, etc. during the rest of the year with those same things and meats/meat substitutes, or even by itself as dessert! I too reduce the sugar to 1/2 -3/4 cup. And I like to add some ground cloves,ground ginger, allspice, and sometimes a little brandy and orange zest.
Nice and tangy
Made this a few days before thanksgiving to give it time to really set but it didn't make it we ate it as a sauce over chicken. Really good I made this time for a sauce to go over a pork roast and added Oragne zest like others suggested since i love cranberries and orange together. Love this recipe and will make again and again
