A delicious, low-carb, sugar-free cranberry relish, perfect for the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 3 cups fresh cranberries
  • ¾-1 cup Truvia (or homemade alternative)
  • ¾ cup water
  • pinch cloves
  • pinch ginger
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
  • 3-5 drops orange essential oil (supplement grade, like Young Living OR use orange zest)
  1. Add all ingredients to a medium sized saucepan (Except pecans and orange essential oil. If using orange zest, add now.)
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce to a brisk simmer, stirring frequently.
  3. Allow all cranberries to burst and begin to reduce and thicken, about 5 minutes.
  4. Cranberries have a large amount of natural pectin, so no additional thickener is needed.
  5. Remove from heat and add chopped pecans.
  6. Once mostly cool, add orange essential oil, if using.
