Paleo Cranberry Sauce:

This Paleo Cranberry Sauce recipe is a great substitute for all the sugar laden cranberry sauces that you find at your typical grocery stores.  Those things sit in aluminum cans where the acidic nature of the cranberry leaches BPA and other toxic chemicals into the cranberry sauce.

They are also loaded with high fructose corn syrup and other sugar alternatives and preservatives.  This recipe just uses real cranberries and anti-oxidant rich, blood sugar stabilizing herbs to help support your bodies ability to use the sugar in the cranberries more effectively without promoting inflammation.

Dr Jockers Comments:

Most cranberry sauces are full of high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavorings and preservatives.  It is ideal to get organic cranberries because berries are thin skinned and are typically highly sprayed with chemicals.  So organic is the best way to go!

This recipe uses tons of anti-oxidant rich herbs such as cinnamon which has a powerful ability to stabilize blood sugar.  Ginger is amazing for the stomach, liver and gut.  Having ginger in this will help make the Thanksgiving meal much more digestible as it helps to stimulate hydrochloric acid in the stomach and bile production and release from the liver.

You can use honey or stevia but my personal preference is stevia as it is natural and has no effect on blood sugar.

  1. I make something similar to this in my breadmaker which has a setting for making jelly. I use a combination of wild cranberries and rhubarb. I also like to add a touch of cloves with the cinnamon. Great stuff! We eat it with everything or just right out of the jar.
