Cranberries are a must-have for certain holiday dinners. Lucky for us they're naturally low in carbs. Unfortunately, almost all the cranberry[ relishes and sauces you'll find in your market are full of sugar! This relish is all about the cranberries, and without all that unnecessary sugar!]
- 1 cup sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
- 1 cup water
- 12 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
Combine sugar substitute and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Add cranberries and orange zest and bring back to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, cool, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
