Sugar free Cranberry Sauce

This sugar free cranberry sauce was an experiment to use up some leftover christmas cranberries but it is going down a treat with cheese and meats.


And I have to say it’s a whole lot tastier and healthier than the horribly bitter orange and cranberry relish that I made for christmas following a Delia recipe word for word.For a decent sized jar full of my sugar free cranberry sauce add the following ingredients to a small non-stick pan:

  • about 100g cranberries
  • a large handful of  chopped dried fruits (I used apricots, prunes and figs)
  • the juice of an orange
  • a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg
  • a couple of teaspoons of cider vinegar
  • agave nectar

Simmer all the ingredients until they become mushy and most of the cranberries breakdown (this only takes about ten minutes). Towards the end of the cooking add a squeeze of agave nectar to taste and pop the mixture into a sterilised jar to cool.

That’s it my tasty sugar free cranberry sauce done!

    Ooo reminds me of Christmas – I did a similar one on Christmas day and everyone loved it, even without the sugar. I think you need your Cranberry sauce a bit tarty anyway adds to the taste.

    I read that you had a good yeast free bread recipe and was it gluten free too? Can’t find it at your site. Any help?
