Recipe: Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce

Dips + Sauces Recipes


My oldest son is literally obsessed with cranberry sauce.  He has been since he was a little boy!  Because it’s his favorite, I always try to make a delicious home made sauce for him each Thanksgiving.  This recipe is particularly delicious.  The cinnamon and nutmeg truly make it.  Plus, it’s lower in sugar than you’re average cranberry sauce.  I know I will definitely be to making multiple batches of this stuff this year!


  • 1 12 oz bag of cranberries
  • 2/3 cup splenda
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 1 dash nutmeg

I’m not a fan of Splenda. Perhaps stevia? But similar to one I make, w/coconut sugar, I don’t measure, tho. I squeeze fresh orange juice into it instead of water - try it! Also a tsp of vanilla & tiny pinch of salt. 😍
