    I make a similar recipe, except I use Stevia instead of Splenda and I use dehydrated cranberries instead of raisins. I have a dehydrator and they reconstitute after sitting in the sauce. I do not use O.J or Marmalade. I cook the cranberries in 1 C of Cider. - 11/18/10

    Absolutely will make again at Christmas. Will add more ginger just for my taste as I like ginger (will make it regular ginger to keep the sugar down), and remember to add the raisins this time. - 12/11/07

  • Very good. I had Smucker's Simply Fruit Apricot spread so I used that. I added 2extra tbs of Splenda (probaly because my spread was unsweetened). I like this alot, simple, healthy, and gingery! - 11/25/11

  • Thought the original recipe was VERY good, and the variations by other members make me want to use this recipe again and again and again... - 11/23/11

  • Very similar to my recipe, except I use a lesser amount of fresh ginger, finely minced, and chopped walnuts. Adding apricots sounds great. Also, it occured to me that adding some shredded coconut and a splash or two of raspberry vinegar might give it a more piquant taste. I love playing with this! - 12/23/10

  • Sounds yummy. I've made one similar to this but with Golden Raisins, & a blended real orange instead of marmalade. Sometimes, I'll put in chopped pecans. It's tempting to eat it just with a spoon! I love cranberries! - 11/20/10

  • This was fantastic. I think it's the best cranberry sauce I've ever tasted. I would never know it was sugar free if I didn't make it myself. I added a bit more marmalade and sweetener. - 12/16/07

  • I made this for Thanksgiving and it's delicious! I usually only eat cranberry sauce 'cuz "you're supposed to." This is the first recipe I've really WANTED to eat! I didn't have raisins, so used chopped dried apricots. Followed the recipe exactly other than that. Really yummy! - 11/23/07
