1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup 100 percent cranberry juice (not cocktail)

1 cup honey

1 pound fresh cranberries, about 4 cups

Combine the orange juice, cranberry juice and honey in a saucepan over medium high heat.  Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 5 minutes.  Add the cranberries and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries burst and the mixture thickens.  Do not cook for more than 15 minutes as the pectin will start to break down and the sauce will not set as well.  remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.  Carefully spoon the cranberry sauce into a 3 cup mold.  Place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours and up to overnight.  Remove from the refrigerator, overturn the mold and slide out the sauce.  Slice and serve.

I don’t know how many points this is, but a little bit goes a long way. 

I didn’t have any cranberry juice and refused to make “one last trip to the store” again!  So, I used white grape juice instead.  I also made 1/2 the recipe as no one else eats this.  It turned out great!!  And I talked my daughter into trying it and she liked it, too 🙂
