Instructions

  1. Put spices, berries and apple sauce in a pan. Bring to a boil.

If you can't find apple sauce without added sugar you can grate a couple of apples instead. You can also use fresh cranberries instead of frozen. You can also top it off with a bit of orange or lemon zest!

    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?

    I like it! Used Mom's home made apple butter with a little water and a 1/4 teaspoon of Trader Joe's stevia in addition to vanilla and cinnamon. Fabulous.

    How longs does this keep in the fridge

    Most food is safe in the fridge for 3-5 days.

    I made this for Thanksgiving. It was delicious. I did add some liquid stevia and some orange flavoring.
