Cranberry Sauces
I love this one. It's a bit unorthodox though:

8 cups homemade turkey stock
2 cups dried cranberries (read label; some brands have sugar)
2 cups apple cider
1 cup dried currants
1/2 cup toasted piņon nuts (or substitute pine nuts)

Simmer all ingredients until reduced by half, about 4 cups. May be seasoned
with a pinch of salt. This replaces cranberry sauce and also gravy at your
holiday feast.

I've also made a more traditional cranberry sauce by simmering 16 oz. fresh
whole cranberries with a bit of maple syrup and 2 cups apple cider. Dried
currants or cubed bits of fresh apple are a nice addition.

We have a wild cranberry bog here along with wild blue and blackberries. 
What I do is add 1 cup other sweeter berries to 3 cups cranberries. On the 
sugar I use 1/2 cup maple syrup or honey even though the recipe calls for 
1 cup sugar. Just enough water to stop burning in beginning too. Between 
the reduced sugar and natural high pectin in all these berries you could 
probably reduce to 1/4 cup sweetener.

Maple syrup might not be Paleo but I'm in New England and have Native 
American ancestry.
