Just got these by email today from a friend (from npttalk.com). Sugar-free cranberry sauce an pumpkin custard. They look excellent! Although i may sub coconut milk for the cream in the custard:
Holiday Cranberry Sauce
* 8 ounces fresh organic cranberries
* 1/2 cup spring or filtered water
* Stevia to taste
* 1 good squeeze of lemon, lime or orange
* Lemon, lime or orange peel (if desired) to taste
* Cinnamon, freshly ground to taste
* Nutmeg, freshly ground to taste
* Cloves, freshly ground to taste
Rinse and drain the cranberries and place in a small pot. Add the water and a squeeze of fresh lemon, lime or orange. Add some of the grated peel if desired. Bring to a simmer and add stevia to taste. Stevia is a concentrated sweetener. I use a knife point rather than a measuring spoon to add the smallest possible increments and taste it until it is just right. Stirring frequently, simmer for five minutes or until the cranberries burst and form a sauce. Add additional water if desired. Place in serving dish, cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Sugar & Grain Free
You will need:
* 2 organic eggs
* ½ teaspoon Stevia or to taste
* ½ teaspoon sea salt
* 1 cup canned or home-cooked pumpkin puree
* Dash of ginger
* ½ teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 tablespoon hot water
* 1 cup cream
* 1/8 teaspoon orange rind, grated
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter the inside of 4 or 5 custard cups, then arrange in a 9-inch iron skillet or a glass or enamelware baking pan. Add water to the pan to the level halfway up the custard dishes.
Beat eggs slightly with rotary beater, then beat in Stevia, sea salt and pumpkin. Mix spices to a paste in hot water and beat paste into the egg mixture. Use wooden spoon to stir in cream and rind. Pour into cups. Bake on top oven rack for delicate browning about 40 minutes, or until custard tests done (insert knife into center of custard. If it comes out clean, it's done). Serve as is or with plain whipped cream. 4 to 5 servings.
