Delicious Low Calorie Cranberry Sauce

Low Calorie Homemade Cranberry Sauce

I love cranberry sauce on my turkey during Thanksgiving and leftover turkey sandwiches but I know how much sugar is added to canned cranberry sauce. This year Ryan's stepsister made a delicious cranberry sauce using splenda sugar substitute instead of granulated sugar and it was amazing! It didnt have that artificial processed flavor and texture that the canned cranberries have and I loved the fact that she used real cranberries which kept it's whole fruit form when cooked. I look forward to making this recipe not only during the holidays but throughout the year on top of Halibut and Chicken to add some extra flavor without all the extra calories!!

6 servings
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granular
1/2 cup water
3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 medium orange, peeled and sectioned

COMBINE: cornstarch, SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granular and water in a medium saucepan, stirring until SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granular and cornstarch dissolve. Stir in cranberries and orange sections; bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 5 minutes or until cranberry skins begin to pop and mixture begins to thicken. Set aside to cool. Cover and chill at least 3 hours.
