Cranberry Sauce is such a staple for a holiday meal and more. Many times we aim for the easy canned variety but did you know that the traditional jellied/canned cranberry sauce brings with it 158 calories for 1/4 cup plus 31 grams of sugar.
On the other hand, I have a quick and yummy recipe that will provide a simple 64 calories and 12 grams of sugar, not to mention the array of vitamins and minerals that still remain. Enjoy!
Here's what you'll need
2 - 12 oz bags of Cranberries
1/2 cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice (approx. 3 juicy oranges)
Zest from 2 Oranges
1/2 cup Water
5 tablespoons Organic Unfiltered Honey (depending on how tart the cranberries are, more honey may need to be added, taste at the end of cooking to decide)
*Choosing Organic for ALL of the ingredients is best.
1. Place the cranberries, orange juice, and water into a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
2. Reduce the heat to medium and continue to stir until all the cranberries have exploded open (5-10 minutes)
3. Reduce the heat to low and add in the honey and zest, and continue to stir for an additional 5-10 minutes.
4. Place in an airtight container in the refrigerator overnight and serve. This also freezes well and can be stored for a later date.
