Cook's Tip: Sauce it up all year if you just love cranberries…
When fresh cranberries are in season, buy several extra packages and freeze them. After a couple months in the freezer, remove and drop the bags into zip-closure freezer bags and replace them in the freezer- they'll keep fresh frozen for 9 months "double bagged."
They're perfect to pop some into your fav low carb baked stuff like Carb Counters™ Cranberry Orange Muffin Mix.
Each 1/2 cup of cranberries has only 4 net carbs.
Cook's Secrets: Commonly available, pure orange extract is found in the supermarket spice/flavoring aisle like McCormicks™ or Kroger's house brand.
It adds a depth of flavor to this sauce that nothing else can. Together with the Spoonful™, you have a truly natural and delicious low carb sauce that deserves its special place in the low carber's kitchen.
This sauce is also great for reheating and coating oven baked or grilled turkey or chicken with. The intensity of flavor stays with the poultry. Another secret is to not over sweeten, or the cranberry tartness dissipates.
