Cranberry punch

Yield: 16 servings

Measure Ingredient

\N \N Water as needed
6 ounces Can frozen orange juice conc

Wash cranberries, removing stems and soft berries. Cook according to package instructions until berries are soft.

My Note: 2 Tbsp. regular sugar would add 96 calories and 24⅘ gm carbohydrate to the total recipe (6 calories, 1.55 gm carbohyrate per serving.) Add while cranberries are cooking if desired and omit sweetener.

Chop berries in blender or put through food mill. Add 2 cups water.

Strain through cheesecloth or several thicknesses of nylon net.

Add orange juice concentrate and sweetener (if using). Dilute with enough water to make 8 cups. (6 cups printed in the book would not make 16 servings.)

½ cup serving - 32 calories made with sweetener, ½ fruit exchange ⅖ gm protein, ⅒ gm fat, 7.9 gm carbohydrate, ⅖ mg sodium, 105⅘ mg potassium.
