Low Sugar Cranberry Sauce

Low Sugar Cranberry SauceThis low sugar cranberry sauce is less than half the calories as regular, canned cranberry sauce (27 calories for 1 Tbsp.). It is a great alternative if you are wanting to cut unnecessary sugars/calories out of your Thanksgiving dinner. 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!
