Cranberry Sauce: Low carb Option

You will need:

  • 1 Cup fresh cranberries
  • Water to cover them
  • 1 Cup cold water
  • 1 Tbsp unflavored gelatin (or one packet)
  • Sweetener to taste

Wash berries and cook gently on stove until they popped. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. If you want a smooth sauce, strain them. Pour 1 cup of cold water in a microwave safe container and sprinkle the gelatin over the top and let the gelatin to soften for about 1 minute. Microwave on high for two minutes till the water is hot and the liquid is clear, not necessarily boiling. Stir this into the cooked cranberries or the strained juice. Make sure it is cool to room temperature before adding your sweetener. Taste to see if it is sweet enough and then refrigerate.
