This is one of my favorite foods, and it can be virtually calorie free if you make the cranberry sauce with something like stevia as I do. Since this dish is not as popular with the masses as it is with both me myself and a few of those close to me, I have learned to freeze it in small batches so that I can bring small'sh portions of it to any gathering where I need to watch calories while others are not as inclined to do so. I make the cranberry sauce in a saucepan, add the rest of the ingredients and blend it with a blender wand rather than straining out the skins and etc. Couldn't be simpler. It is also especially good with celery and turnips (ah, there it is, you can tell that I don't have a typical taste for food as compared to *most* other Oklahomans.... *cheshire grin*). Anyway, try this! If you like it, it might be one of your favorite foods as well. I'm certainly not the only one who eats this when I serve it, though my husband prefers cranberry salsa (ah, yes, the chips thing...., he does love his tortilla chips.......). I have thought that this might be appreciated more widely if it was served as a layer dip with sweetened, low-fat/no-fat cream cheese (perhaps with orange juice concentrate or perhaps some dried orange rind), topped with some nuts. It might be well received that way with some triscuits or shortbread type cookies and apple slices? I'll try that sometime and try to remember to let you know how that went!
