Low Carb Sugar Free Cranberry Sauce

This is the first time I’ve made a sugar free cranberry sauce. I used powdered erythritol (Swerve confectioner’s Sweetener) and then my go to recipe adding in orange and cinnamon. You can make this same recipe with sugar if you choose to, but if I can cut the sugar at this big fat meal, I’m going to.
I have two other cranberry sauce recipes, blackberry cranberry sauce and pear cranberry sauce. You can cut the sugar there too by using erythritol.
The only thing you really need to know about cranberry sauce is that you should make your own because it’s super easy. It’s going to be tart no matter what, which is wonderful for cutting through all that fat in a heavy meal, but it will be a little more tart using a substitute. I actually like that.
You can also play with this recipe by adding in some frozen blueberries if you want a little bit of natural sweetener.
You should also make this your own. I used orange zest only to keep the sugar low, but a little bit of orange liquor never hurt anyone
Also, you can make a marvelous simple syrup with any extra, which is very useful for festive cocktails.
