This no sugar spiced cranberry sauce is going to make you very happy. Why? Besides the fact it is so easy to make, I changed around my original recipe here to get rid of the sugar. I can’t get enough cranberry sauce. Especially at times like Easter (it pairs so well with Ham). we’re trying to eat a cleaner, more health conscious diet, so I wanted to see if I could eliminate the sugar.
The result is a tart cranberry sauce with a snap. Yep, I said that. And guess what? It will still rock your meat dishes! The ultimate test was my family. Not only did they love the no sugar spiced cranberry sauce, my son in law ate half the jar. I’d say that was a win.
If you’ve never made home made cranberry sauce, it’s time to make the change. The canned stuff you buy in the store is full of high fructose corn syrup. YUK! Cranberry sauce is super easy to make. Just place all your ingredients in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat until the cranberries pop and split open. Then place the cranberry sauce in a bowl to cool off and store it in your fridge afterwards.
I buy fresh cranberries every time they are out in the produce section. You can freeze them for later use. Then when I have a free day, I make up cranberry sauce and ladle it into clean sterilized hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Add lids and rings and process 10 minutes in a boiling water canner. This way I have cranberry sauce all year round without having to resort to buying the store brands.
