Makes 8 (1/4-cup) servings
1 (2-cup) package fresh frozen cranberries
1 orange or tangerine (Not allowed on some low-carb diets)
3/4 teaspoon orange or tangerine zest
About 1 cup filtered water
1/4 teaspoon ground clove
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or 1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon Stevia, or to taste
1 teaspoon guar gum thickener, optional
1 pomegranate, seeded, optional
1. Place cranberries in a small saucepan. Squeeze citrus fruit juice over berries; add zest. (If desired, use a scorer to create longer strips of the zest by cutting around the fruit in a circular fashion.)
2. Add spices and sweetener.
3. Add just enough filtered water to cover fruit; stir over medium heat until boiling.
4. Lower heat; stir in thickener, if desired; and simmer for another five minutes. Cool before serving.
Note: Guar gum thickener can be found at health food stores. Add the seeds of one pomegranate before adding the water, if desired
