Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
My efforts to eat clean is not detoured by the Holiday Festivities! I’ve found it’s really not quite as hard as one might anticipate…
I jumped into Erin Sanderson’s Thyroid Jumpstart program and I am on the road to healing, yo! She conveniently included some Holiday recipes in her Energy Eats Cookbook, which I’m super excited to about.
I volunteered to cook some things this Thanksgiving that I could cook clean, and I believe will be enjoyed by all- Cranberry Sauce is one of them!
I thought I’d let you in on the clean cranberry sauce journey as I take it.
Above you’ll find a video of some boys and I making the recipe and below you’ll find the recipe and a link to Erin Sanderson’s (a.k.a. Fit Rocker Chic) Energy eats cookbook. Holiday recipes are in “Energy Eats Amped”.
If no one else eats this sauce… I’ll have a hard time not eating the whole bowl myself…
*2 inch slice orange peel
*2 whole cloves
*3 cups fresh (or frozen) cranberries
*1/2 cup raw honey
*3/4 cup water
*1/2 inch slice fresh ginger, peeled
Stud orange peel with cloves. Heat cranberries, honey, water, orange peel with cloves, and ginger in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until cranberries are soft and sauce has slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Remove orange peel with cloves and ginger from sauce; discard. Cool (if desired) and serve! For a thinner sauce add an additional 1/4 cup water.
