Recipe: Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce
2 - 12 oz bags fresh or frozen cranberries  (about 4.5-5 cups)
2 Tbsp stevia powder (more or less to taste to equal 1 c sugar)
1-1/2 cups water
 Mix all ingredients in a 4 quart saucepan on the stove. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until all sweetener is dissolved. Bring to a boil and cook until skins burst, about 5 minutes. Serve warm or refrigerate.
Makes 14, approx. 1/4 cup (60g) servings.

S/C: 2/1 by itself
Nutritional information for 1 serving: Calories: 30, Carbohydrates: 6 g, Fiber: 2 g, Sugar: 2 g, Protein: 0g, Fat: 0 g 

I like my sauce with a little more kick to it so I added:
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger

Nutritional information remains the same but I think the flavor is much more festive!
