Clean Cranberry Sauce

Christmas is coming and I cannot wait! I’m so looking forward to taking some time off to relax and enjoyΒ spending time with my family and friends!


I will be completely honest and say that I won’t be taking on the cooking of the turkey this year – Christmas dinner is my dad’s speciality but I will be helping out with some delicious side dishes!

This cranberry sauce is the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas feast, I have loved cranberry sauce for as far back as I can remember and now you can enjoy an extra spoon or two with none of the guilt!

  3. Simmer for 25-30 minutes until the cranberries have stewed nicely and a thick sauce has formed.


  4. At this point stir in 1/4 cup of maple syrup or until it is sweet enough for your liking and serve!

This sauce will keep in an air tight container, in your fridge for up to a week.
