Savita's Notes:
If you can't find fresh cranberries for this recipe, use frozen berries instead, although they won't pop like fresh fruits when heated, and they soften much more quickly. Look for berries that are dry and bright red, and discard any that are shrivelled or have brown spots. Cranberries can taste quite sharp, but when mixed with sugar they give a pleasant tang.

  1. Stuart, its good to be health conscious. You can also make Cranberry Butter with sugar free sweeteners like Splenda or Truvia (my favorite). Also this homemade butter has much less sugar then the Fruit Preserves we buy from stores. Thats why its homemade and best since you can alter ingredients to make it best suitable for your health. Happy Cooking.
