Cranberry sauce is one of the most delicious parts of Christmas lunch for me. Usually shop bought jars of cranberry sauce are full of sugar or fructose-glucose syrup, both of which a huge number of health-conscious people are trying to avoid.
If you or a child or yours does not tolerate sugar or complex starches or if you are on a Paleo Diet or SCD Diet then this is a yummy option for you. The orange flavour gives it some natural sweetness and makes this sauce have a more interesting taste than plain cranberry. We love this SCD cranberry sauce all year round, as well as with the traditional turkey at Christmas time, and often serve it with venison or other game.
Cranberry is known for its health benefits in supporting healthy kidney function.The proanthocyanidins in the cranberries may be used to prevent infections of the urinary tract. Cranberries are also a good source of fibre, vitamin C and E.
- Zest one of the oranges and squeeze the juice of both oranges.
- Add the orange zest, juice, cranberries and honey to a saucepan and cook for 5 minutes on a medium heat until the cranberries are soft.
- Use a wooden spoon to stir quite vigorously to break up the cranberries and turn the mixture into a thick sauce.
- Once it has cooled, maybe stir in some Jarrah honey to give it some extra antimicrobial properties.
Nice! I made almost the same but with agave syrup and I caramelised the oj and agave to make the taste a rich richer.
