How do I make this Zero Point Cranberry Sauce?

This sauce is so easy to make.  All you need to do is combine all the ingredients in a cooking pot over medium-high heat.

As the cranberries cook, they will start to “crack” open.

Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about 10-12 minutes or until it appears the sauce is thickening. Remove from heat.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. fresh cranberries
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar substitute (I use Lakanto Golden Monkfruit or Sukrin Gold)
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest 
  • 3/4 tsp. salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan over medium-high heat.
  2. As the cranberries cook, they will start to “crack” open. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about 10-12 minutes or until it appears the sauce is thickening. Remove from heat.
  3. Let the sauce cool for 20 minutes and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

    • In order to calculate the freestyle smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by creating a recipe in the recipe builder) not by the nutritional information. Since this recipe contains zero point items the app doesn’t realize there are zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional info which is not accurate.

I did mine according to the recipe and WOW, it's SO tart! Can I add more sweetener to make it more palatable? Would it change the point value?

Hi Traci

Yes, you may add more sweetener to offset the tartness. If you are using a zero point sweetener, it would not change the point value.

Thank you

Can't wait to try! Is the measurement the same if I use lite brown sugar instead of golden monkfruit? Hard to find here. I know the points will be different.

Hi Beth,

The zero point Lakanto Golden sweetener I use has a 1:1 ratio to regular sugar. So you will use the measurement for real sugar.

Thank you so much!

This was delicious, thank you!! We used it for Thanksgiving dinner and my husband and daughter liked it just as much as the Pioneer Woman recipe we've made in the past. After TG, I used this in two ways - layered with Greek yogurt in a parfait (so good) and then blended into a smoothie (even better!)

Making more tomorrow just for fun. :-)

Made this for family Thanksgiving. Loved it.!!! I have already brought everything to make another batch to put in jars and put in the freezer. Made awesome sauce, put on saltine crackers, and just ate it cold, out of the bowl. Great, great recipe.!!! Thank you, was missing my cranberry sauce.
