Healthy Cranberry Sauce  (naturally sweetened)

Ingredients

Step 1. Soak the dates in hot water for 10 minutes beforehand.

Step 2. Blend the dates: Transfer the dates to the canister of a blender. Add the orange juice and one-half cup of water. Blend until smooth.

Step 3. Combine: Transfer the cranberries, blended dates, orange juice, cloves, cinnamon, and ¼ cup water to a small saucepan.

Step 4. Bring the reduced-sugar cranberry mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 5. Simmer covered: Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the cranberries burst and the mixture starts to thicken.

Step 6. Stir occasionally and add more water, one tablespoon at a time, as needed.
