Simple, Healthy Cranberry Sauce
We still have five more weeks of winter here in the northern hemisphere. While that might not mean a whole lot for us Californians (though we have been getting lots of wonderful rain!), it means most of the country is shivering each day. Well, I have a little warm comfort for you! Although you may associate cranberry sauce just with the holidays, I’m here to tell you it’s a great companion all the way through the winter (and beyond)! You can have it cold or hot, but cranberry sauce can add a certain something to whatever you’re eating. I could put cranberry sauce on nearly anything. However, I don’t like the super sweet jellied stuff, so if that’s what you’re into, this is not the droid you’re looking for. This recipe has much less sugar than most so it maintains its beautiful tartness. I’ve also added some orange zest to brighten it up even more.
- 1 bag cranberries
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- zest of 1 orange
- Put water and cranberries into a saucepan and set heat to high until it boils.
- Once it boils, change heat to medium.
- Add sugar and orange zest, keep mixing and pressing into the cranberries with cooking utensil
- After fifteen minutes or until the cranberries are soft and bursting, set aside
This recipe is simple and delicious. It’s also a condiment you don’t have to feel guilty about slathering on your desired food item. If you don’t have an orange, you can still do the recipe, it’ll just be less zesty. Use this recipe to stay hungry and fit!
