Cranberry Sauce

From the kitchen of Whole9.

Sweet and sour cranberry sauce without added sugar.

Ingredients

  • 2 – 12 oz bags of fresh (not frozen) cranberries
  • 1 cup of 100% pure apple juice (no added sugars)
  • 1 large navel orange, washed
  • 10 dried black mission figs, very finely chopped (make sure you cut the stems off)
  • A dash or two of each: nutmeg, allspice, ground cloves

Instructions

  1. Place the cranberries, apple juice, figs, spices, and ½ cup of water into a covered saucepan on medium heat.
  2. Bring the mixture to a low boil for 10 minutes (until the cranberries “pop”), and turn down to low heat. Simmer (still covered) for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Squeeze the juice from the orange into the sauce, and finely grate the orange zest (use the whole orange peel!) into the saucepan.
  4. Keep on low heat (simmer) for another 15 minutes. Store in airtight container in fridge until ready to use. Serve cold for the best flavor.
