12 oz bag of frozen cranberries (do not use the dry ones!)   

1/2 C water

1 tsp orange zest

1/2 tsp Stacey Hawkins Sinful Cinnamon or Awesome Autumn Blend

4 packets stevia or 30 drops liquid stevia or other sugar alternative

1/2 tsp vanilla

pinch salt


  1. Zest the orange.  (need help?  Check out this cool WikiHow video on how to zest an orange)
  2. Add the berries, water, zest and Fall Harvest Seasoning to a medium size saucepan.  Stir to combine.
  3. Heat over high until boiling.  Reduce heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes until berries burst.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.  You can adjust the amount of stevia if you like the sauce sweeter (add more) or more tart (add less.)
  5. Let cool & serve.  Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

Serving size is 1/4 cup and is counted as 1 condiment.
