This is the first time Ive made a sugar free cranberry sauce. I used powdered erythritol (Swerve confectioners Sweetener) and then my go to recipe adding in orange and cinnamon. You can make this same recipe with sugar if you choose to, but if I can cut the sugar at this big fat meal, Im going to.
The only thing you really need to know about cranberry sauce is that you should make your own because its super easy. Its going to be tart no matter what, which is wonderful for cutting through all that fat in a heavy meal, but it will be a little more tart using a substitute. I actually like that.
You can also play with this recipe by adding in some frozen blueberries if you want a little bit of natural sweetener.
You should also make this your own. I used orange zest only to keep the sugar low, but a little bit of orange liquor never hurt anyone
Also, you can make a marvelous simple syrup with any extra, which is very useful for festive cocktails.
I loved this cranberry sauce left over for my stir fry stuffing!
