CranberriesChutneys combine vinegar and sugar for a balance of sweet and sour flavor. This one not only eliminates the sugar, but adds a touch of heat from red pepper flakes, along with a lovely hint of orange. Make another batch or use leftover chutney as a flavorful spread for cold turkey sandwiches.

1 teaspoon canola oil
1 large shallot, finely chopped (1/3 cup)
1 12-ounce package fresh cranberries
1/2 cup Splenda Granular
1/2 cup regular or light orange juice
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Scant 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon orange zest

1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil and saut shallot for 3 to 4 minutes or until softened.
2. Add all remaining ingredients except the zest, and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Add the zest and cook 15 more minutes or until thickened.
4. Cool and store in refrigerator. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
