Can I Eat Cranberry Sauce? Yes, You Can!
I love cranberry sauce and every year I grab bags and bags of cranberries just so that I can tinker in the kitchen and come up with new approaches. This Low FODMAP Cranberry Sauce with Orange Marmalade takes advantage of the fact that orange marmalade has been tested by Monash and is low FODMAP and orange goes so very well with cranberries.
Tradition Made New
My Mom’s traditional cranberry sauce used orange peel and a cinnamon stick in the mixture, so this recipe is really just an update of hers. The sugar in the marmalade is all the sugar you need! A similar version came out of my alma mater’s Test Kitchen, but the Bon Appetit version also included parsley and black pepper, making it a bit more savory. I like it sweet/tart, just like it is presented here.
Shopping for Orange Marmalade
I like orange marmalade that has a bitter edge, with lots of chunky orange peel and not too much sugar. Sometimes a marmalade will be labeled as “bitter”. Go for that one! Or, at the very least, find one that says it is “medium” or “thick” cut. I buy an imported brand from the U.K., Thursday Cottage, and it keeps this Cranberry Sauce with Orange Marmalade from being too sweet.
Is Orange Juice Low FODMAP? It Is, In Small Amounts
Oranges themselves, by the way, are listed as no detectable FODMAPs. The Monash app lists a blend of reconstituted and fresh orange juice is low FODMAP in amounts of 125 ml, which is a generous 1/2 cup.
Keep your serving sizes small.
