    Perhaps instead of cinnamon, add freshly grated orange and lemon zest? I find that the citrus notes brings out the natural sweetness in apples and cranberries. That's how I prepare cranberry sauce.

    Thanksgiving long gone here. I'm thinking Christmas recipes already. Low carb cranberry sauce is great. Now if you can do a low-carb Shortbread I'll be over the moon.

    This was my first disappointment from a DietDoctor recipe. I made this and it was way too tart! Looks like I won't be having cranberry sauce with my turkey.

    Is this to be served warm or cold?
