Sugar Free Cranberry Sauce for Keto and Low Carb

A tart and brightly flavored cranberry  sauce that puts the finishing touch on turkey breast or pork tenderloin. Can also be used as jam for your keto or protein sparing bread! Cranberry sauce made from fresh or frozen cranberries is far superior to what you get from a can and of course has no sugar!

What do You Need for Making Sugar Free Cranberry Sauce?

Do I Have to Use Allulose for the Cranberry Sauce?

No you can use another sweetener such as liquid stevia.  The reason that I recommend allulose is that many people (like me!) don’t really like the stevia taste and so they might be tempted to use Swerve (erythritol) or some other granulated sweetener.

What can happen is that when you use those other granulated sweeteners to cook in a sauce like this, once they cool down they begin to crystallize and have that weird cooling after taste.

Allulose doesn’t have that problem!

If you live in a country where they don’t sell allulose (currently the case in Canada!), then try iHerb.  I get my allulose there plus other hard to find in Canada items!
