Cranberry Sauce (sweet and sugar-free!)

I've always really enjoyed the canned jellied cranberry sauce at the holidays but it's just so full of sugar.  It was very exciting to discover a recipe that uses such minimal ingredients and has NO sugar:


12 oz. bag fresh cranberries
1 cup water
stevia, to taste
pinch of salt


Wash cranberries and throw away any ones that have gone bad.

Place washed cranberries in a medium sauce pan with the water and bring to a boil.  Continue to simmer for approximately 5-10 minutes or until cranberries begin to pop.

Stir mixture until the consistency becomes more saucy.

Allow to cool.  Store in a glass container in  your fridge and/or use it as a delicious topping or healthy jam-substitute.  I love to use it along with roasted sunflower seed butter on puffed corn or rice cakes as a peanut butter and jelly replacement.  Yum!
