Tips For Making Homemade sugar free Cranberry sauce without sugar
- Add the allulose and water to a heavy bottom saucepan and heat until just boiling. Stir gently and try not to get any allulose up on the sides of the pan.
- Add cleaned and rinsed cranberries to the saucepan.
- Allow the mixture to come to a rolling boil and then turn the temperature down to low.
- Simmer for 10 minutes more or until the cranberry sauce is thickened and glossy, as in the photograph below.
Serving & storage suggestions

No need to skip the cranberry sauce this holiday season. Since this sauce tastes so good and has barely any carbs per serving, pile it on your plate. I LOVE this sauce on a turkey sandwich with low carb bread; It’s an absolute delight.
