My recipes are grain free, refined sugar and many are dairy free. Switching my diet has helped to heal my leaky gut. I have several autoimmune illnesses and eating this way makes me feel better. I have more energy, lost weight and my labs and blood work is coming back as improved. I see a Functional doctor and am pleased with how my health is progressing.
Most things on store shelves I can’t eat as they have ingredients in them that I can’t eat. I like to snack on dried cranberries. But I can’t buy them which means I have to make them myself.
Fresh cranberries are always prevalent in grocery stores this time of year. I bought several bags. I, of course, made Cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. But I still had cranberries left. Dried cranberries make a nice snack. I also used this recipe in my Italian Panforte dessert recipe. I actually think it is a form of fruitcake. I can’t wait to see what other ways I am inspired to use the candied cranberries. So today there will be two posts on my blog this one and Candied Citrus.
- 6 cups fresh sliced cranberries
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- Cut cranberries half.
- Stir together cranberries and maple syrup.
- Place cranberries into two separate trays in the dehydrator on 125 F setting. Let dry for 8 hours.
- Check on cranberries if not dried to your liking return to the dehydrator and dry for 4- 6 more hours.
- Remove from dehydrator and place in a sterilized jar with a lid and store for 4 months.
