Home / Healthy Recipes / Spiced Apple-Cranberry Sauce A lower sugar version of a holiday classic

 

We adapted a Cooking Light cranberry recipe that features half the sugar of classic cranberry sauce. Thanks to a trio of warm spices, this recipe takes cranberry sauce out of candy-sweet territory and into the world of robust holiday condiments. While it’s perfect on roast turkey, don’t discount this sauce’s zesty punch for pork or chicken. Apples counter the tartness of the cranberries and help the sauce thicken. The rustic chunky look of the two fruits is what makes the sauce beautiful and enticing.

Key Ingredient Benefits

Apples: A big favorite, apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

Apple Cider Vinegar: The most popular vinegar in the natural health community is apple cider vinegar. It is claimed to lead to all sorts of benefits, some of which are supported by science. This includes weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and improved symptoms of diabetes.

Cinnamon: This popular spice is a powerful antioxidant and has many additional health benefits. Cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar levels by slowing the rate at which the stomach empties after eating. In addition, it may improve insulin sensitivity, which has positive implications for those with type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, cinnamon has anti-microbial properties, which may help deter the growth of bacteria and fungi.

Cranberries: Delicious, tart cranberries hold significantly high amounts of phenolic flavonoid phytochemicals called pro-anthocyanidins (PAC’s). Scientific studies have shown that consumption of berries have potential health benefits against cancer, aging and neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes, and bacterial infections.

    Baking fish in parchment paper or tin foil is known in France as poisson en papillote (fish in a parcel). It is a very simple and healthy way to cook fish and is also very flavorful since the fish and vegetables cook together in their own seasoned juices. Cleanup is easy too! Any white fish will work. I used tilapia in this recipe. You can refer to the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch guide to help you make ocean-friendly seafood choices.

Don’t worry if you can’t find it, the soup is tasty without it.
