Low-Sugar or Sugar-Free Cranberry Sauce

It makes me sad that cranberry sauce gets a bad rap because of the common understanding that it comes gelled out of a can. Don’t get me wrong—before I was more conscious about the food I consumed, I lived for the red-jellied blob that came complete with all the can markings. Today? Not so much.

That said, my family holiday meals still include a side of cranberry sauce, no matter what—but now it’s this homemade recipe for low-sugar or sugar-free cranberry sauce. If you use honey as your sweetener, this recipe is low-sugar. If you use stevia, then this is a sugar-free cranberry sauce.

Low-Sugar or Sugar-Free Cranberry Sauce

This seasonal fruit is the perfect side to turkey, chicken, roast beef, or a holiday ham. And let’s not discount how healthy it is for our bodies. These little berries offer both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which we all need in our life.

Whichever way you make it, this low-sugar or sugar-free cranberry sauce recipe is easy and delicious. Because whether it’s a brunch or formal dinner, everyone needs their yearly dose of cranberries — especially when they are fresh and in season.
