With Thanksgiving just around the corner I thought I'd share one of my favorite recipes. Now I know not everybody loves the cranberry sauce. It's one of those things that you either hate or love. I'm one of those that love it. Those of you who hate it, don't spank me just yet, I'll put up some more holiday recipes soon.
I've been trying to eat healthier and so I've been experimenting in the kitchen quite a bit. I hate giving up the foods I love, so I've tweaked a lot of my favorites. Enjoy.

Cranberry - Apple Relish

2 cups Splenda
2 cups water
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 peeled, cored and finely chopped apple
1 tsp grated orange zest

In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring Splenda
& water to a boil. Continue to boil for 5 minutes. Add cran-
berries and chopped apple; boil for 10 more minutes or until
cranberries pop and mixture begins to thicken. Remove from
heat and stir in orange zest. Cover and cool.
Yields 4 1/2 cups
