Low Carb Cranberry Sauce
Just in time for the holiday season, we bring you a low-carb option so that you don't have to miss out on the staple of cranberry sauce!
Many of us (myself included) happen to enjoy the chemical-ridden but somehow tasty jelly that is the typical, store-bought cranberry sauce. Still, I cringe a little when I happen to look at the back of the can and read "high fructose corn syrup" and "corn syrup" - nothing about the two are whole ingredients! At the same time, since the holidays mean lots of time in the kitchen, don't worry - this cranberry sauce won't have you cringing, but it also won't add loads of time to your busy schedule either.
With just five ingredients and one pan, you can whip this cranberry sauce up in no time! Not to mention, it is both a delicious and beautifully colorful addition to your holiday plate that'll make those leftovers something to look forward to instead of something to dread eating (think back to Thanksgiving, and you know what I mean).
Fellow foodies - let's make more time for good food, enjoying the little things, and above all else, loved ones this holiday season!
*A note from the editor: Cranberry sauce is one of my favorite things to experiment with during the holiday season. It's synonymous with Christmas, and its deep red color adds vibrance to any plate. I'll admit, sugar substitutes change how "sweet" tastes in a dish. On this occasion, a sugar replacement may just be better than sugar. It's a more shallow sweetness that helps tone down the cranberries' tartness yet still highlights its deep flavor. This recipe is simple, yet each ingredient is equally as important as the next. Enjoy!

I love the bit of a ‘crunch’ that the granulated sweetener adds, though if you do not, be sure to use powdered sweetener instead.
