Main Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Signature KitchensTM Granulated Sucralose (or Splenda)
  • 2 large oranges (includes 1 tablespoon orange zest and segments from 2 oranges)
  • 1 12-ounce bag fresh or frozen cranberries (about 3 cups)

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Remove the zest from one orange (about 1 tablespoon), finely chop it, and add to a medium, nonstick saucepan. Remove the peel from this orange and the remaining orange and place orange segments in saucepan with zest; use potato masher or similar to mash segments. 

Step 2

Place remaining ingredients in saucepan and stir well (add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of orange juice or water if needed or small oranges are used); bring to a boil over medium-high heat. 

Step 3

Reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries pop open and sauce is nicely thickened (about 10-15 minutes). 

Step 4

Cool about 30 minutes then store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
