Cranberry sauce was the one thing I had the hardest time giving up for the holidays when I first went low carb. I love cranberries and they are so crazy nutritious! I also discovered that they are considered a low carb fruit. So this year, I took that idea and ran with it and ended up with this low carb cranberry sauce recipe.
I may have gone a little overboard on my portions of this stuff this Thanksgiving, but it beats the alternative of pigging out on the high sugar/carb stuff any day. It was just so good!!! I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as me and my family did.
