My dad is diabetic, so we need to cut out much of the sugar in most cases (and calories for me)! My dad is diabetic, so we need to cut out much of the sugar in most cases (and calories for me)!
Number of Servings: 12


    1 bag (12 oz) of Cranberries
    1/2 cup (or less) of sugar
    Approx 1/4 - 1/2 cup of Truvia (about 15 packets) or other sugar substitute (I just prefer Truvia)
    1 cup of water


On the stove, combine 1 cup of water, the sugar and truvia on medium heat.

When it comes to a boil, add the whole bag of cranberries and bring to a boil. When it's at a boil, lower the heat and cook for approx. 10 minutes. You will hear the berries "pop."

Original recipe is from the Ocean Spray Cranberries bag - I just adapted the sugar content for my diabetic dad, and calorie watching me! :)

  • This sounds great! Perhaps I might remove all of the sugar and use Splenda if I try this out! :) - 12/26/09

    That's an idea - but I had some "anti-naturalists" at Christmas dinner. So I compromised!
