No sugar added Cranberry Sauce

Two years ago when we hosted Thanksgiving, my sister in law made a sugar free cranberry sauce. She sweetened it with a raisin mixture. I tried to make it this year. 

Cranberry sauce 
Juice of one orange
1cup golden raisins
1 bag of cranberries
1/2 cup Water

Juice orange and place in a sauce pan with raisins.  Simmer until softened. Using stick blender, blend until roughly chopped. Still should have big chunks. Add cranberries and 1/2 cup water. Simmer until cranberries pop. Using stick blender, blend until it is about half blended. Still chunky. Cool and serve. Great make ahead. 

The Results:

It tasted good, but I think I need to purée the raisins in a food processor instead of the stick blender.  The raisins were visibly noticeable.
