No need to use sugar in your cranberry sauce this year! Dates are a wholesome and delicious replacement.
- 5 -10 pitted dates**
- 1.5 cups orange juice
- 8 oz cranberries
It’s best to let dates soak in the orange juice for at least 30 minutes to soften them. Blend dates and juice together.
Put all ingredients together in a pot, bring to a boil, and then lower heat to a simmer until sauce is thickened.
I like to smash my cranberries with a potato masher. Mash or leave whole, as you like.
**I don’t like a very sweet cranberry sauce, so I use 5 dates.
