The More Fruit the Merrier
Not only does this Low Sugar Cranberry Sauce hit the mark as far as your health, it adds so much more complexity of flavors to this traditional food. I love the addition of all the other fruit. The raspberries, apples, and oranges just add an extra delicious flavor! I actually made this recipe with fresh cranberries (because it is what I had on hand) and it turned out perfectly. So frozen or fresh, either works great. I guess just use whatever you have on hand or whatever is cheapest at your grocery store!
