Cranberry sauce our way
Follow receipt on bag. Add walnuts, diced apples, mandren oranges, celery chopped, anything else I have on hand and when set serve with cool whip or whipped cream.
Not so Easy - Good Enough to Make Again
I made this with a cup of coconut sugar instead of regular white sugar. I used frozen cranberries and had to smush them against the side of the saucepan to pop them open after they were fully cooked. Getting the seeds out wasn't really easy. After some frustration pushing against a strainer, I ran the whole mix in the Nutribullet . This took care of the skins but not the seeds. We still had to push the mix through the strainer.
Overall, I loved the sauce. So nice not to have high fructose corn syrup! Mine came out a bit like ketchup, like a sauce, not a jelly but so good on turkey. Note this recipe makes very little.
Quick and easy
I made this quicker by using a hand blender rather than the sieve. It means it’s more of a jam rather than a jelly, but I like the texture of the whole fruit and not wasting any of it. When making it again I’d use less sugar as it’s quite sweet and I’d like it a bit more tart. It filled 2x 1 lb Jared when blending it.
I made this recipe exactly, but it would not set. I squeezed a 1/4 of an orange and 1/4 of a lemon and maybe added too much water. So, I added some Knox gelatin and it turned out perfectly! It was so good that folks were bickering over the last bit. Therefore, I agreed to make extra batches to settle the squabbles. Gee whiz people! lol
My husband is trying to follow a FODMAP diet and high fructose corn syrup is a big no no. Canned cranberry sauce is made with it and I thought we'd just have to give that up until I discovered this recipe. Couldn't believe how simple it was and how good it tastes. The next time I make it, I'm going to try one reviewer's suggestion that you add 1/2 cup water instead of 1 cup for a thicker sauce.
