I always make cranberry sauce at Christmas, along with apple sauce and bread sauce. It is difficult to make cranberry sauce without using a lot of sugar (and I try to avoid using sugar). To get around the total tartness of cranberries I substituted freshly squeezed orange juice, marmalade and honey for the sugar.
12 oz. cranberries
Juice and pulp of 2 oranges
2 tbsp. marmalade (I used Bonne Maman brand)
2 tsp. runny honey
Place cranberries, orange juice and pulp in a saucepan.
When cranberries are popping, add marmalade and honey and stir.
Cook for a couple more minutes, then it’s done.
