November Already…

I don’t know about you guys, but this year has flown by! I cannot believe it is November already! Well, we all know that there are those popular recipes that you HAVE to make every year, including cranberry sauce.

I never used to see the point of cranberry sauce and couldn’t understand why so many people loved it. It was a gloopy, gelatinous, red log that tasted kinda gross. However, I made my own cranberry sauce and fell in love with the stuff!

Favorite Ways To Eat Cranberry Sauce…

I’m not kidding around when I suggest doubling this recipe. My family and I didn’t expect to love this sauce as much as we do!

It is awesome as a:

  • Spread – For an insanely good snack, toast a slice of my Low Carb Bread Loaf, spread some cream cheese and a teaspoon of this sauce on it…trust me, it’s delicious!
  • Sauce for pancakes or waffles (with whipped cream, of course!)
  • Topping to a pastry (either go the sweet route with some sugar-free white chocolate, or go savory with some cheese!)
  • Swirl for mousse or whipped cream (for a yummy, easy dessert)
  • Or simply as a side dish for roast turkey!


I had to add the word “perfect” to the title because…well, because…it really is!

It is sweet, tangy, rich and flavorful and it is ridiculously quick and easy to make! Simply, throw all the ingredients into a large saucepan. Bring it to a boil (stirring occasionally), then reduce the heat and cover it for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the sauce to cool down before transferring it to an air-tight container, and storing it in the refrigerator.

This sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. You can also freeze it for up to two months!
