Jan’s Cherry Cranberry Sauce

Jan usually makes a cranberry Cumberland sauce for Thanksgiving. This year she thought she would mix it up. She had bought some frozen tart cherry juice for smoothies and she thought it would go well with the tart cranberries.

Jan is reducing the sugar in her recipe, because of my diabetes. She is also replacing the cane sugar with palm sugar which has a lower glycemic index—60 vs. 35 value on the GI. Another source suggest that this difference is irrelevant in relation to diabetes.
