Makes 1 ½ cup
12 ounces fresh cranberries
1 cup powdered erythritol (recommend Swerve brand)
¾ cup filtered water
1 teaspoon orange zest
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1. Combine the cranberries, water, erythritol, and orange zest in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the cranberries pop and a sauce forms.
- 2. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
- 3. Serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.
Notes and Serving Suggestions: The confectioners, powdered Swerve will prevent the sauce from crystalizing in the refrigerator so if making ahead, use this product for best results. It is available on line and at most grocery stores. Use orange zest to taste. If you enjoy the orange flavor, you may wish to increase to 2 teaspoons to intensify the orange flavor.
