Chunky Paleo Cranberry Sauce
(makes approximately 4 cups)
8 cups of fresh Cranberries
1 TBSP fresh grated orange zest
1 1/2 cups of fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup + 2 TBSP thawed, frozen apples juice concentrate (no water added, just the concentrate) more if you like it sweeter
1 tsp. cinnamon (or to taste)
Combine everything in a large saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat high heat and then reduce to simmer. Stir occasionally, until desired texture and consistency. I just let mine simmer while I'm doing other things in the kitchen so I do mine real low and slow and let it go 45 minutes to 1 hour. But if you were in a hurry I'm sure you could speed that process up. I just like not really having to think about it, and letting it do it's thing and only stirring on occasion. That's it, remove from the heat, let it cool, store in a glass airtight container for later in the refrigerator and then serve when you're ready to eat it (although my daughter likes it hot, or warm too).
