The ingredients in this recipe are an exact copy of the recipe by Wholesome Yum. I change up the process by boiling the cranberries a little longer to really release the pectin, then after the sauce is done cooking, I blend it and press it through a strainer to get super smooth sauce. The resulting sauce can be used as a dessert topping, waffle topping, ice cream sauce, the base for a sweet BBQ sauce, or in my cranberry cream cheese mousse recipe.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Add the water to a medium sauce pan and bring up to medium heat. Whisk in the powdered Swerve, then add the orange zest (optional) and whisk to combine.
  • Add the cranberries and bring to a rolling boil, stirring frequently for two minutes. Cranberries may pop and spatter, so be prepared for that.
  • Reduce heat to low medium low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce with thicken and the cranberries will continue to pop.
  • Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract.
  • Using an immersion/stick blender, blend the sauce until smooth. You can also transfer to a stand blender and use that, but be cautious of any steam that might vent while blending.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and using a spatula or spoon, press the sauce through the strainer, discarding the skins and seeds that are left over.
  • Serve as a dessert topping, waffle topping, ice cream sauce, the base for a sweet BBQ sauce, or in my cranberry cream cheese mousse recipe.
