Dietitian's tip: Cranberries, also known as bounceberries because ripe cranberries bounce, are high in vitamin C. One serving of this recipe provides about 40 percent of most people's daily needs for vitamin C.
1 cup fresh cranberries, chopped
2/3 cup unsweetened orange juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Sugar substitute, to taste
In a microwaveable bowl, combine the cranberries, orange juice and cornstarch. Stir well. Microwave on high until the mixture thickens, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir several times during cooking. Set aside to cool.
Add the sugar substitute to taste, equivalent of 1 teaspoon sugar. The glaze should be tart. Serve over chicken, turkey or pork. This is also an excellent sauce for grilling, roasting or using as a marinade.
