Who doesn't love cranberry sauce with their turkey (or 'Tofurkey')? Well, no one who isn't a holiday menu feast connoisseur; or is that too 'saucist'? I say no, in my sauciest of sass food snobbery. But I digress. Here's the down-low on this deliciously sassy sugar-free cranberry sauce. So, first as mentioned, it's totally sugar-free with no artificial sweeteners and no aftertaste. Amazing right? I know 🙂
Now, this cranberry sauce is not farm to table because cranberries grow best in ocean side bogs, and my farm does not include such a locale. However, it is about 20 minutes from such a location where cranberries can be foraged. Awesome right? I know! Now this year was very dry, so I can't say these jars contain 100% foraged cranberries but every jar includes a few wild cranberries along with well sourced fresh cranberries.
My cranberry sauce is family approved going back decades, even now having been converted to be sugar-free, and trust me, if it tasted different and in any way less scrumptious, they would let me know in a nanosecond. That's just how we roll when it comes to family gatherings over here.
This cranberry sauce is stock full of fresh cranberries, with a hint of apple and orange, and topped of with teeny touch of cognac. Why cognac? Because my beloved grandmother, rest her soul, always said three truths:
No matter how you feel, always make sure your hair looks awesome
Never stop learning
A touch of Cognac makes pretty much everything taste better
Now, I may not add cognac to my scrambled eggs, but the bottom line is, she's right on point with this cranberry sauce. Using allulose as a sweetener*, this cranberry sauce has no aftertaste, uses no artificial sweeteners, is diabetes friendly, low-carb, and 100% deliciously guilt-free! Hooray!
Made in small batches and then hand labelled, no two batches are exactly the same, and no jar is completely identical. Since we use fabric scraps, while every jar will be finished with a fabric cover and ribbon, the exact fabric and ribbon may change based on supply.
Ingredients: Fresh cranberries, allulose, filtered water, apple, orange juice and zest, cognac, low-methoxyl citrus pectin, monocalcium phosphate.
*Allulose is a rare sugar, that exists in nature in very small quantities such as figs and raisins. It is a monosaccharide, or simple sugar, that is absorbed by the body, but excreted through the kidneys and not metabolized, so it is nearly calorie-free.
