DIETITIAN RECIPE -

Cranberry sauce doesn’t just have to be for Thanksgiving day. A fresh cranberry mix can be a unique topping for a variety of recipes.

1 (12oz) package fresh cranberries
1 orange
1 lemon
2 Tablespoons Clearly Organic Sugar

Place fresh cranberries into a 1.5 quart sauce pot. Then cut the orange and lemon in half. Squeeze juice from the fruit utilizing a reamer. Juice the lemon and orange over a bowl then discard any seeds. Pour juice over the cranberries. Cut several small slices of orange and lemon rind. Place rind into the pot with berries. Add sugar and water then bring pot to a boil. Mix contents and keep at a low boil for about 5 minutes. Cranberries may begin to pop so place a lid over the top, yet allow some air to escape. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes then let contents cool completely.
