Cranberry Orange Sauce with Honey

I wanted to try making a healthier cranberry sauce using less sugar and sweetened naturally with honey.   This recipe has become an annual tradition and I am serving this sauce with our Thanksgiving dinner.

Cranberry Orange Sauce with Honey

1 cup water
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup sweetener of choice (or sugar)
12 oz. bag of fresh cranberries
Juice of 1 fresh orange
1 Macintosh apple chopped fine
orange zest
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Combine water, honey, and sweetener of choice (or sugar) over medium heat and bring to a boil.  Add cranberries, orange juice, chopped apple, cinnamon and nutmeg and return to a boil.

Reduce heat and boil gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Cover and cool at room temperature. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
