-1/2 cup (3 ounces) Medjool dates, seeded and diced
-3/4 cup sweet red apple, peeled and very small chop
-One large, juicy orange 
-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

-1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia (SCDers use additional 3 tablespoons honey)
How To: 
1.  In medium sauce pan bring cranberries and water (or water/juice) to a boil, stir and turn down to a rapid simmer (for about 5 minutes)
2.  Add apple, dates, honey, and stir to incorporate, and gentle simmer for about 10 minutes
