Cranberry Sauce can be a wonderful accompaniment that transcends any Thanksgiving feast. This Cranberry Sauce Apples Oranges recipe is a perfect topping for Smoked Turkey and Stuffing Waffles. The challenging part is that fresh cranberries are very hard to find after the Holidays season. That’s because the growing season is just before Thanksgiving. Wisconsin is one of the biggest growers for cranberries since 1995. Who would thing that the cheddar heads produce so much cranberries about 57%. I grew up In Wisconsin and never realized that they even grown cranberries. But this was in 60’s and a lot has changed.

To the solve problem of finding fresh cranberries on off season was to substitute dried cranberries. Working with dried cranberries gives you a different outcome so some adjustments needed to be made. First problem is the wonderful color missing cooking with dried cranberries. Remembering past using raspberry gelatin as flavor enhancer and thickener would be wonderful start. This time using sugar free raspberry gelatin to reduce calories and still have some sweetness to Cranberry Sauce Apple Oranges recipe. The result was perfect by adding just half of a package of gelatin mixture achieving just the right color and flavor boost.

Finally to adjust sweetness to sourness in Cranberry Sauce Apples Oranges by adding some Stevia Sweetener. Just 3 to 4 packets will do the trick. The taste was almost as good as using fresh cranberries, far better then the canned alternate.

Try this Cranberry Sauce Apples and Oranges with your next Turkey, Chicken or Pork roast. The balance of sweetness and sourness of cranberries, apples and oranges makes this recipe a perfect choice. Enjoy!
