Will never buy Canned Cranberry Sauce Again

Cyn from N Brunswick, NJ

Very easy recipe! I put a couple of slices of ginger, a couple whole cardamon pods and small piece of cinnamon stick. I removed the spices when it was cooked. To thicken I mixed a couple of teaspoons of cornstarch with an equal amount of water. I added this bit by bit to the cooked sauce until it was the proper consistency. The result was the best cranberry sauce I have ever tasted! Even my husband who refuses to eat the canned variety is a fan!

Sugar free that gels

Agreed, you CAN make a sf cranberry sauce that will gel. one packet of Knox and for more flavor (and less Splenda), use a box of sf Jell-o, berry flavor of choice. I add chopped orange and walnuts with a 1/4 tsp of cardomon

A little fix up

Sari from Bristol, CT

I use Diet Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice for the liquid and Splenda for the sugar subsitutue. I press the mix through a wire seive over a large mixing bowl to remove all of the skin and pulp. I then wisk in 1 pkg of cranberry sugar free jello (stop & shop store brand usually) I then pour the mix into molds and refrigrate. They set up just like regular cranberry sauce from a can.


Mary from perkins, MI

I use Knox gellatin disolved in a little cold water according to pkg. directions. Add to cooking cranberrys. When berry's are done I refrigerate until gelled.

Tasty Dietetic Cranberry Sauce

My diabetic friend loves his cranberry sauce, and this is as good as regular without the guilt. I use Splenda in mine.
