Well, Thanksgiving is next week and I promised 2 people I would post this amazing cranberry sauce recipe; I was having qualms about sharing it because of the amount of sugar – but then, I thought, well maybe someone has a great idea about how to reduce the sugar in it. Please let me know!

At any rate, if you make this, exercise portion control and if possible, increase physical activity to balance!

Happy holidays!! <3

Cranberry Sauce

  • 4 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups orange juice (including juice of 2 lemons)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 grated, peeled apples (Granny Smith if possible)
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 2” stick cinnamon

Combine sugar and orange juice; bring to a boil.
Add all other ingredients and don’t stir.
Lower heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes til most cranberry skins have popped. Remove from heat and let cool.
