    I'm thinking this would also work with ground almonds, not flaked, all stirred together, into a really puddingy texture.
    :hungry:

    Cranberry Sauce

    I did eventually get a mo to make cranberry sauce. You said it was still quite tart, so I made a change to my recipe for it. I'm happy with it, and it is now separated into 2 boxes in the freezer: I will report back later on how freezing affects it!


    300g fresh cranberries
    225g fresh raspberries
    1 sachet Hartley's raspberry sugar-free jelly
    50ml boiling water
    25ml cold water

    • Put the cranberries and raspberries into a saucepan with the cold water. Heat and simmer gently until the fruit is quite soft and most of the cranberries popped. (It took about 8 mins.)
    • Meanwhile, mix the jelly powder with the boiling water, stir until dissolved.
    • When the fruit is ready, stir in the jelly.
    • Allow to cool and then refrigerate.

    These ingredients make 600g of cranberry sauce, 20 x 30g servings.

    The result, like you say, @Avocado Sevenfold, is jammy not jellied, but the jelly gives the sauce the body/consistency that would normally be achieved by loads of added sugar, which low-carbers can't be doing with. Yay!:)

    1 x 30g serving:

    2g carbs
    Neg fat
    0.5g protein
    9.7 kcal

    I made these Chocolate truffles from a recipe I found on the internet. I've tasted one after my lunch and it was very nice. As a coeliac I haven't eaten Christmas pudding or Mince pies in over 2 years, So a couple or three after Christmas dinner tomorrow :D

    Saw this on Facebook today - from a carnivore page. Some good ideas for nibbles on a buffet.

    I have both of their previous diabetes cook books and find the recipes really good. In fact I'm serving the carnitas recipe on Boxing Day to non-low carb guests.
    Thanks for the Kindle Unlimited tip. I've just been offered 3 months for 99p, so well timed!
