Cranberry Sauce: Clean Eating Style

Thanksgiving was a freakin’ success here at Casa-de-Flinger. Here is the cranberry recipe I used. Recommended: Use ALL the honey (I ran out) otherwise add some sugar otherwise it’ll be so tart you’ll suck your cheekbones in to the insides of your brain.

But aside from that: Delicious.


4 cups Fresh Cranberries - picked over
1 hard tart apple, peeled cored and cut in to chunks
1 cup Orange Juice
1 cup Water
1/4 cup Organic Honey
Rind of one orange, pith removed, minced

Cranberries and Apples Baking

1. Rinse cranberries under running water. Place rinsed cranberries and apple in medium saucepan with orange juice and water.

2. Cook berries over high heat until they burst.  You will her them popping.  Reduce heat to low and add honey and orange peel.  Conitnue cooking over low heat for another 15 minutes.. The liquid should stick to the back fo a spoon.

3. Remove from heat and let cool.  Trnsfer to a bowl and cover with wrap. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
