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
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.
